On 30th September 2010 the Human Capital Forum will bring together some leading thinkers to present at a ground-breaking conference on the future of management.
At the end of a decade that has seen major organisational failures through accountancy scandals, excessive risk-taking by the banks and a high rate of failure in merger activity, this conference will explore the extent to which poor models of management have contributed.
It will reflect that, while most value in organisations resides in the human capital in the workplace, business theory has not caught up. Speakers will discuss how proper stewardship by the Board, supported by fuller reporting of business intelligence, can better inform managers, investors and the wider public about an organisation’s value, its strengths and its risk profile.
This unique one-day conference on the future of management will be addressed by some of the leading thinkers in the field – including some of those who had warned of excessive risk-taking before the credit crisis.
This conference will explore the potential of:
• A broader definition of the Board’s role, in addition to shareholder returns,
• Fuller reporting of business intelligence, including human capital reports,
• A more complete definition of ‘sustainability’,
• The potential for linking marketing investments and employee engagement,
• More diversity of views in media coverage.
This conference will illustrate how the management agenda is changing radically following the banking crisis, and explore the inter-dependence of different disciplines – helping to move away from ‘silo’ management. It will also offer an opportunity for senior business leaders from different disciplines to network and share ideas.
It is a must for senior level executives with an interest in understanding the importance and the nature of a company’s most valuable asset; and why traditional approaches to understanding this are out-dated. This will include CEOs, HR Directors, Financial Directors, Shared Services Directors, HR Business Partners, Organisational Development Directors, Pay and Benefits Directors.
