Managing the Transition from HR to Human Capital Management

The purpose of this website is to assist those who are wanting to transition to effective Human Capital Management.

HR is NOT the same as Human Capital.  Human Capital Management adds two different dimensions that were previously not present in HR management, namely:

  • Workforce Architecture, and
  • Workforce Analytics

HR Management is essentially about managing the Employee Life Cycle.  This remains as important as ever and most HR people will want to stay in this field.  Human Capital Management adds to Employee Life Cycle Management and is about understanding, measuring, and managing the value that the workforce adds to organizational value.

So, this website is for:

  • HR Managers, Consultants and Business Partners who are wanting to transition to Human Capital Management, and
  • Line Management who need to manage the contribution that their team makes to Organizational Value.

We do this by:

  • Helping you to build a Workforce Architecture that is able to sustain all phases of the Employee Life Cycle
  • Guiding, through Coaching, the development of your Human Capital Strategy Plan
  • Providing current thought-leadership information in our IT/HR Guru Blog and in the IT/HR KnowledgeBase
  • Providing training through our webinar series on making the move from HR to Human Capital Management.

We hope that you find the information here useful and informative, and we look forward to a long and continually developing relationship with you.

We're still busy making changes to the website, especially a new Home Page, and some new products and services for you. We can't wait to get started.
In the meanwhile, we have added a new article:
"Workforce Architecture - How to Build YOUR Workforce Architecture"
Planning, designing and constructing your Workforce Architecture is not a complicated issue – but it is time- and resource-consuming and needs meticulous attention to detail.
