Webinar Overview

Business transformation is on every organization’s agenda. And information is at the core of every aspect of this shift: how fast companies move, how well they make strategic and organizational decisions, and how well they find patterns in markets and internal operations.

Human resources leaders have become increasingly sophisticated in using technology and analytics for a wide range of HR and talent management practices. But HR analytics cannot be isolated within HR. To add real strategic value to the company, HR expert David Ulrich says, HR leaders need to focus on creating an information capability throughout the entire organization.

In his newest research, Ulrich found HR executives at leading companies taking on a new role in designing and implementing an institution-wide information agenda.

On October 24, in this interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Ulrich will outline his research and learning and provide a framework for HR’s role in building and sustaining information as a fundamental organizational capability. He will share insights from HR departments that are already playing important roles in the information management agenda by using data to address and solve a wide range of business problems.

Creating this information agenda represents a unique opportunity for HR to create competitive advantage—and for organizations to move ahead in the new business landscape.

Join HBR on October 24 for insights from Dave Ulrich into how HR leaders can take the lead in leveraging the information agenda to add value and drive business results
