Making Human Capital Decisions that Deliver Results

This unique series blends a powerful webinar with Dave Ulrich, one of the world’s leading thought leaders on managing people and organizations, with follow-up assessments and facilitated discussions.

A partnership between Thinkers50, RBL Group and CorpU, the series will provide answers to the compelling and pressing question faced by all involved in managing and maximizing human capital: Are your investments in people and organization initiatives giving you measurable results?

From decades of research, the RBL Group has created an Organization Guidance System (OGS) that helps decision makers more precisely target and measure the impact of people and organization investments on employee, strategy, customer, investor, and social citizenship results. Too often these well intended initiatives create positive activities but ones which are not directly linked to results.

The stark reality is that most organizations spend about 1 to 2% of annual revenue on people and organization initiatives without explicitly managing, measuring or targeting where to spend it.

This powerful series will help you to change this.

Dave Ulrich is the Rensis Likert Professor at the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan and a partner at the RBL Group. He is the world’s leading thinker on managing people and organizations and the author of over 30 books.
