We're constantly looking for ways to make our companies or organizations more successful. We often ask ourselves: "What can we do to develop and drive maximum organizational performance?" "How can we separate ourselves from the competition?"� "How can we build a long-term sustainable advantage?"� It used to be that organizations could differentiate themselves through such means as product leadership, advanced technology, geographic coverage or process management tools and systems. But in today's ultra-competitive global business environment, these advantages are short-term and temporary. The reality is that the only long-term sustainable advantage that remains is the "people."� However, leveraging your workforce as a practice isn't so easy to understand, let alone accomplish"¦ unless you have a roadmap or path to help you along the way. Human Capital Management: Leveraging Your Workforce for a Competitive Advantage is just that. Your roadmap to maximizing your most important organizational asset: your people. This roadmap is centered on Human Capital Management as a practice, and focuses on how to successfully implement organizational goals that are heavily reliant on the collective efforts of the people in your organization.
