People Analytics and Change Masterclass

January 31, 2023 - February 16, 2023

This masterclass addresses the current challenges facing HR Business Partners, People Analytics (PA) and Organization Development (OD). Currently, PA and OD are organized and implemented as separate spheres of expertise, with HRBPs drawing from both to help in their work. The problem for the business and HR is that this disjointed approach leaves tremendous value on the table, impacting strategy execution and organizational effectiveness. What we need is a more integrated approach to reveal actionable insights and produce meaningful change.

All three groups have substantial room for improvement in their current practice:

  • HRBPs are stretched too thin to effectively use the best insights from both PA and OD.
  • OD needs to make better use of data and measurement in the process of diagnosing systems challenges and driving change.
  • People Analytics needs to be more closely aligned and integrated with the interpersonal and change work of OD and the HRBPs.

This workshop provides tools, frameworks and insights for all three groups to improve practice and business impact, including the following modules:

  • Turn data into C Suite decision making: Analytics efforts too often focus on finding facts to demonstrate “objective” realities in the org system without ensuring they resonate with the right audience. This module shows how to influence and drive the right interpretation of the data from the business leaders’ perspective, not just factual presentations of statistical analyses.
  • Integrate analytics and OD to activate successful org change and transformation: Successful change requires the right mix of process, measurement and action. Combine the best data and measurement tools from the analytics world, with the dynamic tools and frameworks used by OD to diagnose, guide and deliver organizational change and transformation programs that work.
  • Tactics to engage senior business leaders: Deploying the right mix of OD plus analytics to engage key stakeholders and decision makers is both art and science. This module shows how to strike the right balance to achieve maximum results.
  • Conduct org diagnostics using qualitative and quantitative analysis: Classic analytics approaches rely too heavily on analyzing and collecting data from individuals, rather than the teams and org units where the business and strategic outcomes are realized. Comprehensive org diagnostics of the drivers of business performance require a combination of case study and systems analytics.

The masterclass will also include a review of cutting edge and advanced analytics techniques to clarify, for both analytics and non-analytics professionals:

  • What the techniques are good for, and their limitations
  • How best to apply them on their own, versus in conjunction with other measurement, diagnosis and change approaches

Examples of the techniques and issues to be addressed include machine learning, network analysis, advanced survey design and analysis, and identifying economic relevance rather than just statistical significance.

  • HR business partners
