A tale of three business leaders with one thing in common:
First, thereís the chief learning officer, or similarly titled executive, in an organizationís learning division. CLOs work daily to develop, grow and maintain crucial skills.
Then, thereís the human resources executive. HR leaders ensure the company is staffed at the right levels, and that all employees can contribute to the best of their abilities to help the company achieve its goals.
The final members of the triumvirate are the senior leaders. These executives focus on the strategic needs of the business, trusting that HR has a committed staff in place and the CLO has them ready for whatever eventuality.
Three business leaders, three different roles, one thing in common: performance. The thread pulling all these professionals together is concern for peak performance, both from the people and from the wider organization. The CLO imparts the skills, the HR executive manages the overall development, and the senior leadership ensures that the right resources are used to the right advantage.
That, folks, is performance management, and itís shaping up to be the future of corporate development. Progressive companies are increasingly ensuring that proper alignment between employee management and education is in place, and the result is a leaner, more vital, better-prepared and better-performing enterprise. Itís the ultimate win-win situation, with employees taking advantage of total career management and development opportunities, and businesses better able to advance in their industry and deliver more to the shareholder.
With all this in mind, Iím proud this month to welcome the newest addition to the MediaTec Publishing family, Workforce Performance Solutions magazine. CLOís newest sister publication, Workforce Performance Solutions will debut in April 2005, mailing initially to 25,000 key business executives concerned with fine-tuning the performance engine of their enterprise. Subscriptions are now available at www.wpsmag.com/subscribe.
In addition to feature articles on the issues and ideas surrounding performance management, Workforce Performance Solutions will feature a dynamic lineup of industry-leading columnists, including experts such as Ken Blanchard, Marshall Goldsmith and Harold Stolovitch. Each issue also will feature Q&A interviews with leading business executives and case studies of performance improvement initiatives at large companies.
