In this Report, Tony Grundy takes you through a number of phases towards developing and implementing an HR strategy.

From a diagnosis of HR issues--identifying and assessing the critical areas where Human Resources can enable or frustrate business strategy and operational performance--to an analysis of the external and internal future environment of your company and the effect on your Human Resources--this is practical information aimed at HR and senior line managers.

Using a Future Organizational Model, you will see how to flesh-out future organisational structures, skills, behaviours and attitudes, and be able to define, develop and prioritize Human Resource 'breakthroughs'--in other words, a small number of concentrated programs or projects which move you towards that future.

This Report includes:

Diagrams and charts to bring the process of developing an HR strategy alive
Case studies (including Champneys Health Farm and Nycomed Amersham)--learn from the experiences of fellow HR professionals
