CRF Learning Programme: Commercial Thinking for HR
About this programme
All of the CRF Learning programmes focus on business impact, but this programme will go into greater depth about what this actually means. It will build on the high level views from the HRD and HRBP programmes in which much of the focus was on behaviour. Whereas this programme will focus entirely on the impact. Attendees will create a clear action plan for implementation in their own organisation that not only enhances individual competence but that makes a real impact on organisational performance.
The programme will help attendees appreciate what commercial acumen is, why it matters for HR and how HR can deliver real value to the organisation.
Delivered by Dr Rebecca Homkes, Teaching Fellow at the London Business School and Nick Holley, Director of CRF Learning, the programme will:
- Explore the concept of commercial acumen and why it matters for HR.
- Help you understand, analyse and take a balanced view of business performance grounded in commercial value creation, the tripple bottom line and business ethics.
- Develop your confidence in demonstrating commercial solutions to deliver sustainable business success.
- Examine the 'strategic context' and its implication for HR, as well as inspect how value is created.
