For all the talk about making human resources a strategic component, it's still viewed as a costly support function. Veteran executive Ralph Christensen brings to this book a nine-step roadmap drawn from years of experience in making HR a key strategic element at organizations like Digital Equipment, Wyatt and Hallmark. He simplifies HR hierarchies by aligning functions with five fundamental processes and answers questions about engaging line management and overcoming weak functions and processes.
"One of the best thinkers in the profession, Christensen has shown repeatedly that he can turn ideas into action."

"This accessible, down-to-earth book offers a prescription for achieving strategic focus in complex organizations."
