As markets are becoming more challenging or have started
to grow at rapid rates, the challenge of managing human capital has increased significantly.
Many CEO’s complain, more than ever, that they have turned into “HR Managers”. Managing
the employee through the complete lifecycle, in many cases, has become harder than
even managing the customer lifecycle. Not only has the CEO’s office been impacted,
but even the corporate boardroom.
Sanjiv Anand, Cedar’s Managing Director takes his 25 years of global managing consulting
experience to share his observations and experiences of what CEO’s around the world
go through from the CEO desks of a Fortune 500 company in Texas, to a bank in South
Africa, to Family owned businesses in the Middle East, to the fast growing corporations
More importantly in his rapid and lucid style, Sanjiv identifies the top 20 strategic
and operational answers to managing human capital at the CEO level, right from recruiting,
executive compensation, culture, succession planning, and managing the board on
these issues. The book with its many satirical illustrations is designed to make
the topic an easy read.
