Lean Human Resources: Redesigning HR Processes for a Culture of Continuous Improvement by Cheryl M. Jekiel
English | 2010 | ISBN: 143981306X | 263 pages | PDF | 5 MB

Encouraging a long overdue shift in thinking, this book gives managers and executives the means to maximize employee potential by first showing them how to increase the improvement power of their HR departments.

Cheryl M. Jekiel, who has been implementing Lean initiatives out of HR offices for 20 years, defines the people-related approaches and practices needed to alter any cultural dynamic that keeps employees from leveraging their peak abilities. She looks at why so many companies allow this sort of waste to exist, how traditional HR departments have not been especially effective in combating waste, and why today’s HR department should be seen differently, as a partner delivering exceptional customer service to employees.

Everyone Needs to Learn and Improve

Everyone Needs to Participate and Be Involved

Ultimately, lasting change requires evolution in an organizational cultural and to achieve such change requires definitive changes in behavior. To ensure that changes are properly paced and effectively put into operation, the book puts forth a proven five-year plan that includes the building of improvement-linked competencies into each job.

Everyone Can Lead

Lead with the Customer in Mind

Lead by Teaching and Coaching

Lead by Creating More Leaders

A final section is designed especially for CEOs who must address their own views of HR before addressing improvement. They must recognize that Lean HR strategies and methods can be used to create a highly motivating place to work, and that anything less would be a waste of talent. To begin, an organization must realize the value of its HR staff and put it to use implementing improvement that is organic, fundamental, and self perpetuating.

Equity Value Enhancement: A Tool to Leverage Human and Financial Capital While Managing Risk

Equity Value Enhancement: A Tool to Leverage Human and Financial Capital While Managing Risk

Equity Value Enhancement: A Tool to Leverage Human and Financial Capital While Managing Risk by Carl L. Sheeler
English | 2015 | ISBN: 1118871006 | 368 pages | PDF | 2 MB

A detailed look at risk identification and value creation in private equity investment

Equity Value Enhancement (“EVE”): Governance, Risk, Relationships & Knowledge (“GRRK”) provides the information and tools practitioners and business owners need to work with the multitude of intangibles (“GRRK”) in equity investment decisions. The author engages readers with an insightful and brief claim: “Values are more than numbers.” He then provides support for just how important human capital is to the value creation paradox. He doesn’t stop there because ideas without definitive actions don’t promote transformation. He further challenges the reader with: “If you don’t think outside of the box, you’re doomed to live in the box.”

A user-friendly manual chock full of vignettes, suggestions and pithy commentary EVE is a must read for owners, officers, boards and advisors to derive understanding of business value drivers. This book teaches the reader how to conduct more intangible asset due diligence as well as what decisions and behaviors impact value. With more effective methods of risk identification, measurement, management, and mitigation (“IMMM”), trusted advisors and owners can establish a “working on the business” strategy to prioritize issues impacting a company’s intangible assets – assets which almost inevitably create the largest component of value in flourishing companies. This focus also serves to reduce risk while leveraging human capital and operational effectiveness. This book challenges users of value enhancement and valuation services to demand greater intellectual rigor to best serve owners/investors of the United States’ economic engine—the midmarket company. Therefore, readers are challenged to look beyond the common metrics and numbers. They are admonished to rely less on formulaic approaches and on software that can generate spurious opinions. The reader is called to action by the author, a US Marine Combat Officer veteran, to lead the change: “You burn the boats if you want to be sure you succeed taking the island.”

Trillions of dollars of private equity are changing hands as Baby Boomer owners and investors seek greater liquidity and legacies while investors seek higher returns from direct investment in private companies. This book provides risk and human capital guidance removing some of the guesswork on valuation and value creation.

Provide better evidence of value & equity discounts

Identify and quantify risk and provide tools to manage it

Inform better business management and investment decisions

Create a more comprehensive valuation for equity investments

Roadmap and strategy for enhancement of going concern value

Governance, Risk and Compliance (“GRC”) management are hot topics in today’s economic environment. The familiar financial metrics may not be providing adequate indications of value creation – the core principle of most shareholder investment expectation. To identify risk and work with it effectively, practitioners need an in-depth understanding of the forces at play. Equity Value Enhancement is a detailed, insightful guide for making better equity decisions.

Finally, the author puts his passion front and center by offering the reader the opportunity to invest in the human capital this book addresses by encouraging support of military veteran’s with combat PTSD so they may be productive citizens with the leadership and business skills provided by our country’s “Greatest Generation.”

The purpose of this book is to provide HR professionals and other business executives with key human capital measures. Yet for some HR professionals, when it comes to measuring activities around human capital, concrete measures can feel elusive. Numbers that relate to the context of a specific business, particularly the same industry, employee size, and geographic location, are usually difficult to find. But it is precisely this organizational profiling that is most beneficial to enable similar organizations to compare themselves to each other. The 2015-2016 Human Capital Benchmarking book contains more than 40 metrics about human capital, such as turnover, cost-per-hire and salary increases, which are detailed enough to assist HR professionals in managing HR initiatives for their organization.
