    CRF Learning: Group HRD Programme
    Wednesday 4 - Thursday 5 September

    Location: Fanhams Hall, Hertfordshire.

    Speakers: Dave Millner, Associate.

    Overview: Through CRF and our sister organisation Strategic Dimensions, we have been listening to both HRDs and CEOs for 20+ years about what they want from an effective HR leader and their function. This gives us a unique insight into the role of a ‘boardlevel HRD’ and what differentiates the great from the average. Building on CRF’s exclusive research and experience, this programme delivers a highly-tailored learning experience; very different to the usual “here’s what we’re going to teach you” programme. The programme will help experienced HR professionals either take the next step in becoming a Group HRD, or become more effective having recently moved into the role. Participants will experience a highly-personalised and individual programme with the ability to shape the content of the course to suit development requirements.

    Who is it for?Senior, in-house HR professionals who know about HR and their business but are looking to either progress to Group HRD or become more effective, having recently taken on the role. They are likely to already be the HRD of a business unit, region, function or a Centre of Excellence Leader (CoE) or newly in position as a Group HRD. In 2017 two newly-appointed Group HRDs, three HRDs and two CoE Heads attended the programme. There are limited enrolment slots in order to facilitate building a community that will establish trust and develop mutual support.

    CRF Learning delivers a suite of development programmes aimed at enhancing the capability of the HR function and the individuals within it. CRF members benefit from preferential pricing on all CRF Learning programmes.  If you would like to hear more about CRF Learning, or how CRF membership would benefit your organisation, please email harriet@strategic-dimensions.co.uk

    London, location for CRF Digital Disruption and Organisation Development Manifesto
    CRF: Organisation Development Manifesto – A Road Map for Progress
    Tuesday 5 November

    Location: Glaziers Hall, London.

    Speakers: Dr. Eliat Aram, Tavistock Institute of Human Resources. Dr. Mee-Yan Cheung-Judge. Margaret Heffernan, author, broadcaster and speaker. Nick Holley, CRF Learning. Dr. Christopher Worley, Centre for Effective Organizations (CEO).

    Overview: Whilst OD has existed as a specialist discipline for many years, and has contributed enormously to our understanding of people in organisations, its track record in delivering organisational improvement is mixed. On the one hand there’s a huge opportunity for OD to play a key role in creating organisations high in innovation, productivity, energy and consistent performance. On the other hand, OD’s remit is often unclear, its impact hard to measure, and it can be seen as ‘touchy-feely’, disconnected from the business or lacking influence. The rapid changes brought about by digital transformation have enhanced OD’s challenges. Organisations are going through more change than ever, yet it is estimated that two-thirds of these change initiatives fail, often due to human factors. The challenge for OD is not just to help individuals  improve, but to create the conditions for people, and the organisation, to flourish. Unless OD is more effective in creating this context, the risk is that organisations will be even less capable of adapting to rapid market and technological changes.

    Who is it for?Organisation Development (OD) professionals, those with a remit for organisational change or improvement, and senior managers looking at how they might more effectively harness their organisation’s people resource.

    Speakers: Nick Kemsley, Associate.

    Overview: We know talent is vital to current and future business performance. Yet research and experience continue to suggest that our talent management approaches are not delivering the business outcomes we want, in the timescales we need, and at a cost we can afford.

If you are working at talent strategy level, are actively involved with talent, and/or interact with senior business stakeholders across more than one people process area, this programme will inform, challenge and develop your talent thinking and practice.
