C. Leemans & S. Duts (2013)., Human Ressources Development as a strategic business lever.
This article has been written as a summary of a presentation Move! did for the Flemish Learning Network in March 2013 and it breaks with the general idea that strategic HRD would be mainly about translating the business strategy into developmental actions and policies in the organization. Although that is part of it, Move! argues that an important strategic role of HRD is SHAPING and Co-creating the business strategy. Shaping in two distinct ways : first by supporting and facilitating the organizational strategic process and making sure that it is based on sound processes and involving all stakeholders and secondly by contributing our HRD knowledge on the labour market, change management, innovation, organizational processes etc... which is crucial knowledge to forge an implementable and successful business strategy.
