Do you hate HR? The gap between competency and job requirements is widening for HR professionals. According to Keith Hammonds at Fast Company, most HR organizations "have ghettoized themselves literally to the brink of obsolescence." Do most HR organizations "get it"? – in one word – NO. They want (and need) to be more shareholder value to the organization but lack the tools, capabilities and understanding of what it means to be strategic innovators. Instead of wanting to be "invited to the table" they should be focused on proving why they should be there!
