HCM Strategic TransformationHCM strategic transformation (or HR strategic transformation) has implications on the overall enterprise, not just the human resources function.  Before embarking on the HCM transformation initiatives, here are the critical questions to ask and answer.

Essential Questions regarding HCM Strategic Transformation:

  1. What are the overall enterprise goals? Do the HCM strategic transformation have an impact on the enterprise goals and contribute positively to the overall organizational change?
  2. Is the C-Suite, beyond the CHRO (Chief Human Resources Officer) on board and bought into the vision?
  3. Is the HR transformation program detailed and based on an integrated HR transformation framework? Is the roadmap flexible enough to withstand the inevitable changes in strategy due to macro factors and competitive dynamics?
  4. Human resources transformation affects all employees – who are the critical stakeholders. Is there a plan to orchestrate change management to help the entire organization pivot to a new model?
  5. Is the HR strategic transformation a holistic and integrated reinvention including the operating model or just a rip and replacement of a system?
  6. Is there an HR transformation stakeholder map and a communication plan?
  7. Are the timelines aggressive and yet realistic? Are there competing for initiatives that are vying for attention, resources, budgets and how will the enterprise manage overall portfolio prioritization?
  8. What technologies are necessary to enable the HCM function? Is the firm ready to embark on new generation cloud-based HR software systems?
  9. Are you celebrating or plan on celebrating successful milestones?
  10. Are the employees clear on the change required and the value delivered by the human resources strategic transformation?
  11. Beyond the official training and change management programs, are you harnessing the power of informal networks and “Sneezers” who can amplify the effect?
  12. What is the new HR operating model? Do you have clarity of the structure, resources, policies, and procedures required to run the HR function?

HCM strategic transformation programs are not easy and a walk in the park. Asking hard questions and adopting a pragmatic plan is a start. Execution will always result in additional challenges – foreseen and unforeseen, big and small, critical as well as irritants – and the program team must be adept at navigating these risks and focus on reaching the desired future state.

Product FAQs:

Can I see a Sample Deliverable?

We are sorry, but we cannot send or show sample deliverables. There are two reasons: A) The deliverables are our intellectual property, and we cannot share the same. B) While you may be a genuine buyer, our experience in the past has not been great with too many browsers and not many buyers. We believe the depth of the information in the product description and the snippets we provide are sufficient to understand the scope and quality of our products.

When can I access my deliverables?

We process each transaction manually and hence, processing a deliverable may take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a day. The reason is to ensure appropriate licensing and also validating the deliverables.

Where can I access my deliverables?

Your best bet is to log in to the portal and download the products from the included links. The links do not expire.

Are there any restrictions on Downloads?

Yes. You can only download the products three times. We believe that is sufficient for any genuine usage situation. Of course, once you download, you can save electronic copies to your computer or a cloud drive.

Can I share or sell the deliverables with anyone?

You can share the deliverables within a company for proper use. You cannot share the deliverables outside your company. Selling or giving away free is prohibited, as well.

Can we talk to you on the phone?

Not generally. Compared to our professional services fee, the price of our products is a fraction of what we charge for custom work. Hence, our business model does not support pre-sales support.

Do you offer orientation or support to understand and use your deliverables?

Yes, for a separate fee. You can hire our consultants for remote help and in some cases for onsite assistance. Please Contact Us.
