In Dr. Fitz-Enz's presentation, “Workforce Intelligence: How to Manage Human Capital in E-world,” he will discuss how managing human capital in this explosive environment requires a combination of technology and decision science. This session will describe how this is being applied and outcomes measured especially from a global perspective.

Industry pundits, Dave Duffield and Aneel Bhusri, talk about their vision of HR and its role in the new collaborative, networked environment. How is the next generation of systems evolving from the back office to the front line in order to meet the needs of tomorrow's global business managers? Learn about what you need to do to be prepared and take advantage of the impending paradigm shift.

The session by Al Walker covers the major aspects of HR Technology Alignment, including how technology priorities are set, the budgeting process, our interaction with senior business leaders and their involvement in our work, our HRIT organization structure, competencies of our HRIT staffs, the range and breadth of our HR technology applications, and the content of our systems.
