A glimpse of the future? Review by BJL
Overall rating
The case studies included are entertaining as well as educational, but the real value of this book is that it is a new approach to strategic HR. This is NOT what you'll read in an HR textbook about strategic fit, but I came away convinced that high-performing organizations will be doing this in the near future. HR professionals need to be aware of this application of marketing segmentation to HR management. The book is well-written, engaging, and the best HR book I have read in years. (Posted on 8/21/2013)
