Articles from Human Capital Review
Don’t let derailers make you hit the leadership brick wall
For many years the human resources function has been attempting  to establish and improve its legitimacy. Many books, articles and journals have been written on what “HR Champions” should be doing. So with all this guidance, thought leadership and competency frameworks - why is it that we still do not have a “place at the table” and be called business partners – a title which we have endowed on ourselves but do not have the legitimacy that we so desire. — Advaita Naidoo, Principal, Jack Hammer

Corporate strategy decision making, demystified
For senior leaders of single-business companies, making high-level strategic decisions can be a daunting challenge. The difficulties involved in such decisions only increase with the number of businesses under the company umbrella. With multi-business firms, the problem shifts from achieving competitive advantage within a certain industry or market, to achieving corporate advantage—i.e., managing interactions between businesses in a portfolio so that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. — Phanish Puranam, Roland Berger Chair Professor of Strategy and Organisation Design, INSEAD.
