Victory through Organization

By Dave Ulrich, Wayne Brockbank, Dave Kryscynski, Mike Ulrich | April 5, 2017

Dave Ulrich and his colleagues present the latest research into the next step in HR’s creation of value―turning the war for talent into victory through organization.

The RBL Group and the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan have shaped much of the HR profession for 30 years through the Human Resource Competency Study (HRCS). With this latest (7th) round of research, Dave Ulrich, David Kryscynski, Mike Ulrich and Wayne Brockbank call for us to pivot from fighting the “war for talent”―to creating victory through organization.

Victory Through Organization provides the rationale for shifting your focus from how to help individuals prosper to  the organization. Filled with fact-based insights and field-tested strategies, it demonstrates that organizational success isn’t just about the talent you have―it’s about how the collective organization makes the individual talent better. To this end, HR professionals and business leaders will develop a powerful strategy for:

  • Upgrading HR professionals by determining which HR competencies have the most impact on personal effectiveness, stakeholder outcomes, and business results.
  • Recognizing the key ingredients of a more effective HR department, with a focus on assessing business information and offering integrated HR solutions

Victory Through Organization offers tools business leaders and HR professionals need to better respond to emerging opportunities, and it provides expert advice for building HR departments to deliver measurable business value. You will learn how to build organization capabilities, strengthen systems, and empower human capital―for longer lasting success.

Dave has published over 30 books on leadership, organization, and human resources. These ideas have shaped how people and organizations deliver value to customers, investors, and communities. He has consulted and done research with over half of the Fortune 200 and worked in over 80 countries.  He has received numerous public recognitions and lifetime awards for his work.
