This book highlights the changes and challenges to the role of the HR Business Partner, overviewing the emerging service delivery models for the HR function (in particular the development of shared services and outsourcing options) and what this means for the HR Business Partner (HRBP) in the modern enterprise. The purpose of this book is to provide a conceptual framework and practical advice, based on real life case studies and recent research, into how HR Business Partners best add value to the organization. The authors have extensive experience of working in the area of HR restructuring (having been HR Directors in blue chip organizations and senior advisers in leading consultancies) and have consistently come up against confusion and contradiction about what is the new role of the HR Manager/Business Partner in supporting business managers in the delivery of strategic and tactical objectives. Theory and conceptual models are used to underpin this book but it has been written as a pragmatic, hands-on guide that will help its readers think through how best they might fulfil the role of the HRBP. The book contains checklists, case study examples and self-assessment tools. It is supported by supplementary material (updates, further case studies, templates and tools) which are available via the authors' website.

Book News
The authors, all consultants, provide conceptual frameworks and practical advice about the notion that human resource (HR) departments no longer serve as support functions but are rapidly turning into business partners (BP) with line management. With particular emphasis on outsourcing and sharing resources they cover the evolution of HR into HRBP, the role of HRBP, shared service centers, centers of excellence, partnerships with line management, technology, integrated solutions and "best of breed," measurement of success, , developing the HRBP, selection and career management, and lessons learned in implementation. They include a number of real-life examples, including instances in which success was limited by lack of clarity, lack of support by senior management, or lack of teamwork by HR management.
