Strategic Analytics: Leverage Analytics to Improve Business Results and Organization Effectiveness

HR analytics and business analytics are at a crossroads today. We have at our fingertips access to the most powerful computers, the largest databases on organizational processes, and ever-expanding information on consumer behavior and the way commerce is conducted worldwide. Yet organizations struggle as much as ever to achieve strategic objectives and improve organizational effectiveness.

Whether you are a business leader, HR professional, or analyst, the workshop will help you make better business and human capital decisions, and direct the analytics conducted in your organization for more actionable insights. The workshop includes specific guidance on what to do and what not to do:

  • How to tell Finance ROI doesn’t matter: Building org capability to support competitive advantage
  • The right way to measure and improve employee engagement to support the business
  • Change the paradigm from perfecting HR processes to improving business results
  • The right way to scorecard and measure HR (hint: it’s not turnover and safety metrics)
  • Put the business cart before the statistical horse: Avoiding the dangers of HR data mining

Specific examples from the participants’ current business, human capital and analytics challenges will be used throughout the workshop to demonstrate how to apply the Strategic Analytics approach.

This workshop provides participants with models and a process for conducting analytics that support improved organizational effectiveness and strategy execution. It incorporates two complementary approaches to analyzing organizational issues: the enterprise approach used by senior business leaders, and the human capital approach used by HR and frontline managers. Both approaches have substantial drawbacks when applied independently. The workshop shows how to integrate them for a comprehensive, systems approach to diagnosing the sources of strategy execution failure. The insights provided by the systems approach have direct implications for enterprise investment and annual budgeting decisions that impact the organizational capabilities needed to execute the business strategy.

Bernard Bedon will address how Amgen uses HR metrics and analytics as part of HR transformation and organizational change. The Amgen case study will be used to highlight specific elements of the Strategic Analytics framework.
