New Program

Today's most successful business leaders understand that they must manage their human capital as strategically as their financial capital. To that end, executives focused on an organization's people and talent have an important role to play in designing business strategy and aligning the organization to execute.

In this new program designed exclusively for chief human resources officers and other senior human resources executives, you will explore the questions that keep CEOs up at night—and improve your ability to contribute insights to address core business opportunities and challenges. You will expand your ability to predict outcomes, diagnose problems, recommend bold moves, and be the creative, strategic leader your organization needs.

What You Can Expect

This program will expand your ability to analyze business challenges and collaborate with your organization's senior leadership team to develop solutions. Through an intensive learning experience led by senior HBS faculty and incorporating unique insights from a select group of current and former CEOs, you will deepen your knowledge of topics that typically arise in executive committee meetings. You'll have the opportunity to analyze problems, collaborate with peers and CEOs, and recommend actions that create business value.
