"Linda Holbeche describes the alignment of HR strategy with business strategy as "the holy grail of HR teams" and, equipped with this wonderful book, it's an objective which I believe many more of those teams will be able to achieve. By combining a balanced and incisive review of the latest academic thinking with well-chosen and insightful examples of current best practice, she has created a valuable resource which is inspirational and pragmatic in equal measure."
- David Fairhurst, Senior Vice President and Chief People Officer, McDonald's UK and Northern Europe

It offers clear guidelines and approaches for HR to help leaders better identify and solve their problems. The ideas in the book are comprehensive, thoughtful, and accessible. This wonderful book will help line managers know what to expect from HR and HR professionals know how to meet those expectations."
