Program overview

People determine the success or failure of a business strategy, and formulating a HR strategy enables you to leverage the human network potential in your organization. Understanding how to effectively align people within the strategic context of your organization will strengthen the contribution of the HR function, improving both organizational culture and business performance. 

The HR Strategy and Impact course provides tools and insights to enhance your strategic impact and influence, as well as your knowledge of organizational development. The course introduces a HR Strategic Impact framework and explores practical skills on the following levels:

  • Strategic—developing your strategic role, impact, and influence of HR
  • Tactical—enhancing the way you create ownership for initiatives with key stakeholders to impact meaningfully on the organization
  • Personal—the way in which you develop and leverage your strengths and courage to enhance your personal credibility and impact
