The Programme in Detail
AM – The Role of the HRBP

  • Clarity of HR’s purpose, vision and values
  • Explore the core purpose of the HRBP: the role of the HRBP versus where most time and effort is spent
  • Identify key attitudes of great HRBPs.

PM – CRF’s Strategic Framework for HR

  • You will simulate a senior management meeting to explore your organisational analysis and understand key business inputs – business imperatives, external environment, internal climate, resources, etc.
  • You will look at perspectives from other members of the management team to explore how HR can add value to these conversations and not simply respond to HR-related questions.
  • You will then look at how to influence decision making and manage expectations to generate greater impact.

AM – CRF’s Strategic Framework for HR (continued)

  • In the second half of the simulation you will explore the business analysis carried out on day one and its implications for HR.
  • This will include
    • The assessment of capability versus organisational challenges
    • The necessity of evidence in decision making
    • The value of communication, involvement and ownership
    • The importance of prioritisation and measuring business outcomes, versus HR processes.

PM – Future and on-going development

  • We will work with you to create a longer-term and developmental career agenda for yourself and colleagues.
