“This book is likely to be the GPS (Global Positioning System) of HR strategy — irrespective of where you are today in your HR strategy, you can find an appropriate route to your intended outcome, if one followed the framework of action suggested in this book. If this book cannot offer a platform for line and HR managers to effectively play their part in aligning their firm capabilities to their strategy, then perhaps no book will be able to do so again.”— Dr. Santrupt B Misra, Director, Group H.R. & I.T., Aditya Birla Management Corporation Ltd.
