HR Magazine Different Slant: Modern Melded Network HR Model

My second Different Slant article on modern organisation design is in HR Magazine this month.

The first article was on modern, people-centric organisation models and summarised some of my insights from chapters 6 and 7 of ‘The Social Organization‘, as well as providing a few slight updates on platform and blockchain based organisations too.

The new second article applies this same logic to the HR organisation and provides a new HR model, the Melded Network HR Model that is the first substantial update beyond Ulrich’s three legged stool.

The full magazine is available to view or download here (you’ll find my Different Slant article on pages 38-40).

And if you read it (and you should), do let me know what you think.

I’ll also be publishing some more thoughts (somewhere between the high level review in the HR Magazine article and the detailed treatment in my book) on Linkedin – do check and follow / connect with me there too.
