The authors have also collaborated on two previous books, entitled: The Workforce Scorecard: Managing Human Capital to Execute Strategy and The HR Scorecard: Linking People, Strategy, and Performance.

The Workforce Scorecard: Managing Human Capital to Execute Strategy was published in 2005 by the Harvard Business School Press. It offers a framework that identifies and measures the outcomes, behaviors, competencies, mind-set, and culture required for workforce success and reveals how each dimension impacts the bottom line. The lynchpin of this perspective is an emphasis on looking at the role of human capital from the “outside in” (or customer back), not from the “inside out” (starting with the HR function).

The HR Scorecard: Linking People, Strategy, and Performance was published in 2001 by the Harvard Business School Press. In it, we argue that HR measurement systems must be based on a clear understanding of organizational strategy and the capabilities and behaviors of the workforce required to implement that strategy. The HR Scorecard is a tool to help managers design an HR architecture that relentlessly emphasizes and reinforces the implementation of the firm’s strategy.

In addition to their books, the authors have also written a diverse array of articles for publications in the field. To view a comprehensive selection of these articles, visit www.bhbassociates.com/articles.html.
