The international bestseller Human Resource Champions helped set the HR agenda for the 1990s and enabled HR professionals to become strategic partners in their organizations. But earning a seat at the executive table was only the beginning.

They provide practical tools and worksheets for leveraging this knowledge to create HR practices, build organisational capabilities, design HR strategy, and marshal resources that create value for customers, investors, executives, and employees.
