Investing in People

As the human resource (HR) profession has continued to evolve beyond transactional responsibilities, many HR professionals have embraced the fact that technology enables them to collect and analyze data efficiently and in ways never before possible. They’ve discovered that the ability to analyze, measure and articulate HR’s contributions to organizational success allow them to make even greater contributions within their organizations. They’re using measurement to investing in people.

But many HR professionals aren’t agile in the use of measurements to move their businesses forward. Some simply don’t know where to begin or are still looking for the “one true way” to measure—or are asking, “just tell me what to measure and what the number should be.” They are thirsty for an analytic framework that underlies the whole issue of measurement.

Strategic Procurement

Strategic Procurement
In today’s challenging environment a company’s success is determined by its ability to utilize all the assets at its disposal. One asset often neglected by the boardroom is supplier expenditure, yet most organizations spend at least half their costs with their supplier – often for business-critical goods and services.

Effective procurement delivers rich rewards where P&L impact is relatively painless and immediate, benefit/cost ratios of 10 to 1 are realistic ambitions, in-year payback commonplace and top-line growth and cost reduction are both achievable.

This book is for executives who recognize this opportunity and as such covers all aspects of strategic procurement, including: the role of both the top team and the organization as a whole in procurement; understanding the importance of procurement in delivering your customer value proposition; optimizing supply chains; reducing cost and creating value; making yourself important to the suppliers you need; sustaining procurement improvement and keeping it on the business agenda.

Showing you how to cut costs while improving your business and the importance of effective supplier relationships, Strategic Procurement offers real understanding of the true worth of procurement in the boardroom.

Brain Rules

Brain Rules

Multitasking is the great buzz word in business today, but as developmental molecular biologist Medina tells readers in a chapter on attention, the brain can really only focus on one thing at a time. This alone is the best argument for not talking on your cellphone while driving. Medina (The Genetic Inferno) presents readers with a basket containing an even dozen good principles on how the brain works and how we can use them to our benefit at home and work.

The author says our visual sense trumps all other senses, so pump up those PowerPoint presentations with graphics. The author says that we don’t sleep to give our brain a rest—studies show our neurons firing furiously away while the rest of the body is catching a few z’s. While our brain indeed loses cells as we age, it compensates so that we continue to be able to learn well into our golden years. Many of these findings and minutiae will be familiar to science buffs, but the author employs an appealing style, with suggestions on how to apply his principles, which should engage all readers.
