For me, this really gave a new perspective on how to go about hiring talent. If you are responsible for bringing in talent to your organization, I highly recommend it.

Some useful concepts. focus on competencies is a highlight. Otherwise many many assumptions veiled be a highly mechanistic approach. The authors concentrate mostly on the how, a bit on the what and very little on the why. If fully implemented, tons of HR spreadsheets will abound containing data that still will be highly questionable. And last but not least, the idea of "how many excepcional employees did you hire" sends shudders down my spine....

I found this book very useful as well as insightful. It does talk about people and how they are connected to everything that an organization does day in and day out. It is a good tool book for HR practioners as well. The book provides some contemporary ways of dealing with so called HR issues that organizations of today face. Most relevant in the recession time such as the ones that we are experiencing.

Although I read this book as part of my assignment, it was very informative. I'm sure that I will have a different perspective of the book once I actually get into the field of HR, but it was still a good read.

Interesting concepts, but way too academic of an approach. Some real world examples and anecdotes would have helped.

“At any given point in the life of a project, the only two things that matter are the amount of effort and resources required to complete the project, and the present value of the cash flows that the project will generate. As harsh as this may seem, the energy and effort already invested in the project are irrelevant. Goals and strategies change, and sometimes the most prudent course of action is to cut your losses and to move on to more value-creating projects.” 0 likes
