This book scientifically and systematically highlights the HR competencies needed in the future to create sustainable organizations of excellence. It provides a new and critical ‘outside-in’ perspective, so relevant in today’s context. The bled of research and case studies coupled with thought leadership of Dave, Wayne, and their global colleagues provides invaluable universal and regional insights for management practitioners. I am also delighted to see the role played by National HRD network, India in getting the Indian perspective and, indeed, as a matter of pride, that the book gets released when NHRD is celebrating its twenty-fifth year.
