Human Capital Supply Chains

Human Capital Supply Chains

by Tim Giehll, Sara Moss




Corporations have been building and optimizing manufacturing supply chains for over three decades. Companies like Dell and Wal-Mart are famous for leveraging supply chain management techniques and technologies to breakout from their competitors and own their markets. It's time to refocus and apply the lessons learned from optimizing your product lines to optimizing your workforce. Building a just-in-time human capital supply chain is big commitment, but one with the potential for big returns.

Human Capital Supply Chains explains how corporations can get their arms around their human capital spending and estimate the value of implementing a human capital supply chain, As we learned in manufacturing, establishing and managing a supply chain not only reduces costs in the short-term, but the long-term tuning of the supply chain can result in unprecedented growth and strategic competitive advantage.

For those ready to face the challenge and the opportunity, Human Capital Supply Chains also provides the practical steps of designing and implementing your own human capital supply chain. The book is structured as a "How To" handbook for implementing and managing the new processes, technologies and organizational rotes that will be required.

Translating manufacturing supply chain lessons learned to the human capital supply chain is an obvious idea and makes perfect business sense. There is no doubt that if you want your firm to lead in the post-recession talent grab, you must start building your human capital supply chain now. It's your decision. Are you ready to get going, or are you going to wait to be overtaken by competitors that act first?
