Harvard Business Review Notes by Frank Olsson

The October 2015 HBR issue comes with the cover message: The new rules for competition; be paranoid, disrupt yourself; go to war for talent. The third point could be changed to ‘finding, recruiting and retaining the best talent’ – or ‘intensify the quest for talent.’ (I think we should avoid war and war analogies - the war on terrorism, the war on drugs and the war on poverty have not been successful. Business is not about war – it is about service and competition – competition originating from Latin competere – to seek together). Please find below a few notes from this issue.

Harvard Business Review Notes by Frank Olsson

This issue is about HR – “It’s time to blow up HR and build something new. Here’s how!” Some interesting observations even if I feel quite hesitant to the idea of strong central HR as I believe that HR should be the main focus of all senior managers. Developing and maximising the energy and competency within your team must be a direct responsibility of all managers and any suggesting that you can be a manager without such focus and skills is mistaken. The debate will no doubt continue. Please find below a few notes from this issue.
