If you’re looking to move human resources out of the administrative back seat to the driver seat of change management and strategic imperatives in your organization then this is the book you need to read. I recommend this book to any human resource or organization development professional or department who is seeking to be an active strategic business partner in their companies. The book documents excellent examples of benchmark tools and processes.
