Post-Meeting Review Notes: Thriving in Complex Systems
We are living in an age of complexity, with multiple, unrelated factors coming together in unpredictable ways to create situations where old solutions no longer work – they demand new ways of thinking, behaving and organising.
CRF's masterclass on 8 March 2017 set out to discuss the factors leading to this complexity and how to deal with it, becoming aware of the traps we can fall into, and building the capability to lead in new ways. Doing this in practice was illustrated through two case study organisations, Tesco and BP.
In this case study from BP, Lucy Knight looks ath the HR modernisation programme at BP. The case study addresses the pressures from the external environment (oil price, changing context, demographic changes, technology) and why the programme was undertaken, implications for line manager accountability, lessons along the way and the value being delivered to the business.
Building Capability: Outcomes for Leadership, Talent & Culture
This case study from Jane Storm, explores how Tesco responded to the external challenges in terms of their organisational model, leadership and finally HR. The case study looks at the “black art” of organisation design, what this has meant in practical terms and explores the implications for the capability of the HR function and the people in it.
The purpose of HR is not simply to 'do HR' but to build organisational capability. With this in mind, the next CRF Learning HR development programme will expand on this business centric approach. Starting on 27 April 2017, the programme is aimed at HR professionals aspiring for their first HR Director role, those new in a position of Human Resources Director or those looking to increase their effectivenes as and HR Director.
