About the book

Expert Dave Ulrich and his team of authors, named BusinessWeek's #1 Management Educator, introduce a completely new way of thinking and behaving in human resources, shifting the focus from internal difficulties to actively helping to develop business strategies. When it comes to implementing innovative strategies to drive growth and cost efficiency, businesses of the future will need "all hands on deck," which includes human resources.
The team proposes a four-phase transformation model in HR Transformation that teaches you how to make substantial progress in contributing to your company's performance by restructuring HR to work as a strategic partnership.

HR can only alter organizations if it first transforms itself. This book demonstrates how. HR transformation was essential in the past; now it is critical! We are about to enter a new world. In the face of uncertainty, HR transformation may help our enterprises thrive.

Marshall Goldsmith, bestselling author of the Wall Street Journal What Got You Here Won't Get You There, and Are You Ready for Succession?


Ulrich and his colleagues are stern, but they present a clear plan for how those of us in the field might use our own instruments to conduct a "720-degree" assessment of ourselves. We won't be able to help our organizations succeed unless we upgrade ourselves.
Wallace Brett Donham, Linda A. Hill Harvard Business School Professor of Business Administration


HR Transformation presents compelling theory and practical tools to achieve alignment between strategy, processes, and people, based on groundbreaking research with hundreds of firms and thousands of executives." Every leadership team in the world should read this important book carefully.
