Dave Ulrich video: Using data to drive the profession

Dave Ulrich, Rensis Likert professor at the University of Michigan, discusses the issues facing HR

In our exclusive series of videos Dave Ulrich, Rensis Likert professor at the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business, discusses the most important issues facing HR with editor Katie Jacobs.

In part three, Ulrich discusses what the ideal HR director of today looks like, and how this compares to five or 10 years ago. “As we look at the transformation of HR we see three things you have to pay attention to,” he says. “One is the HR profession. Another is the HR function in which we work. The intersection of that is analytics. How should we use data to drive both [the profession and function]?”

In our exclusive series of videos Ulrich, who has consistently been voted one of the most influential thinkers in HR, looks at what drives business performance and how HR can help organisations to succeed.

The series – kindly sponsored by MHR – will also feature insight on managing multiple stakeholders, analytics, transforming HR, and speed teaching.
