Below are links to some of our favorite books on the topic of HR strategy and measurement. They include the seminal works by Dr. Jac Fitz-Enz discussing measuring the efficiency and effectiveness of the HR organization (that became reality through the Saratoga Institute); works by Dave Ulrich (one with Norm Smallwood and one with Wayne Brockbank) that discuss finding the value-add of HR; books by Brian Becker and Mark Huselid describing measuring the HR organization and measuring the workforce; Human Capital Edge is based on the early Human Capital Index research by Watson-Wyatt; Jack Phillips’ detailed approach to calculating ROI in training and other HR programs; and the book on intangibles written by Baruch Lev that lays the foundation for the importance of the asset known as Human Capital.
