The guest on this week’s Digital HR Leaders podcast is Dave Ulrich. Dave is a renowned university professor, author, speaker, coach, and management consultant. He a Professor of Business at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, and co-founder of the RBL Group. With his colleagues he has written over 30 books that have shaped the HR profession, defined organisations' capabilities, and shown the impact of leadership on customers and investors.
In our conversation, Dave and I delve into a multitude of topics, including how HR can increase its impact to leaders, organisations, and workers. We talk about the qualities that a great chief HR officer has, we actually even talk a little bit about some of the criticism of his infamous HR business partner model, and how the model has evolved over time. We talk about four phases of digital HR, efficiency, innovation, information and connection. We talk about the impact that technology and the future of work is having on strategic workforce planning. And we also delve into some of the surprising, and perhaps worrying, findings Dave's researchers unearthed on how companies are using people analytics. Finally, we also talk about what Dave calls his new moonshot, an organisational guidance system that could herald the dawn of next generation HR, and increase the business impact of the function by several multiples.
