Do Not Split HR – At Least Not Ram Charan’s Way

Harvard Business Review

Ram Charan’s recent column “ It’s Time to Split HR ” has created quite a stir. Much of Charan’s recent work has tilted towards organization and people (books on strategy execution, leadership pipeline, talent and advice on intensity, change, leadership traits, performance management, governance). I believe that Charan’s perspective reflects an increasing emphasis among business leaders on the organizational capabilities required to win.

Execution - The Greatest Challenge in Business

Six Disciplines

In their book Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done, authors Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan strongly support strategy execution as a critical leadership role, making three clear statements: Execution is a discipline, and it's integral to strategy formulation. To quote former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz: " When it's all said and done, more is said, than done.". Likewise, execution is critical to an organization's success, yet it's much easier said than done.

Charan, Drotter, and Noel wrote about six leadership passages in their classic book The Leadership Pipeline. Unless you are an heir to a throne, people usually don’t begin their careers leading a large organization. There’s a progression of passages, or at least there should be. However, they use the terms “leadership” and “management” interchangeably. There’s a big difference, right?
