Creating Dynamic Organisations: Human Capital Issues and Options for Tomorrow's Business

Series: MB Executive
Paperback
Research underatken by a leading recruitment consultancy has shown that four new human capital needs are rapidly emerging. Companies now need: * Corporate integrationists * Senior level people developers * Multi-tasking GMs * Logistics' gurus All these jobs have become super-critical to the success of business in Europe and the U.S.. Having acquired, merged and formed alliances, firms must now integrate what they own into a coherent whole (there is strong evidence that little has been done in pulling together disparate parts of businesses by organizations who have been on the acquisition trail). These four job areas above are all required to achieve real integration and a real sharing of ideas, distribution systems, products and services into the business, to milk the value of the acquisition process. All these types of people are in short supply. Having identified these new corporate needs the report then looks at how to recruit, reward and retain the people to meet them. The report closes with projections for long-term executive needs.
