About the book

HR professionals have come a long way in their quest to become strategic partners. They must, however, go further by generating value through astute talent decisions. HR directors frequently believe that in order to make such judgments, they must create complex analytical tools from the ground up. Even so, the tools that result frequently fail to engage their peers.

 

John Boudreau demonstrates how HR directors may break this pattern by adapting sophisticated analytical methods currently in use by other functions to the unique problems of talent management in his book Retooling HR.

 

Boudreau describes six proven business tactics leaders already use, based on his study and examples from businesses such as Google, Disney, IBM, and Microsoft. He also demonstrates how HR can use these technologies to manage talent. Here are several examples:

  • Using engineering tolerances to locate pivot points that aren't included in job descriptions
  • To assure a ready supply of the proper talent, use inventory and supply-chain data.
  • Using logistics technologies to improve leadership development and succession planning
  • Adapting consumer research methodologies to uncover untapped total rewards value

 

Beyond HR, Boudreau's bestselling book that charts HR's evolution as a decision science, is the foundation for Retooling HR. This daring new book blazes an imaginative new path for HR professionals wishing to strengthen their decision-making prowess.
