This ExecBlueprint describes an integrated approach for managing performance, risk, and compliance through centralized governance processes. It is called “GRC” (governance, risk management, and compliance), and it provides a framework for sharing policies, processes, and documents at the enterprise level to improve communication, create organizational efficiencies, and reduce unnecessary risk.
While compliance and reporting are absolutely necessary, they will not be sufficient to truly enable an organization's business strategy. Taking this opportunity to think through the ways in which workforce management strategy supports overall business objectives can position HR leads to have a huge impact on organizational performance, as well as costs. This Research Brief looks at how organizations respond to the ACA, as well as the underlying technology foundation that can enable both reporting and the execution of an overall workforce management strategy.

In the world of business (and innovation), “risk management” does not necessarily mean risk prevention. Often, there will be core areas where your company is willing to take risks in order to generate returns, such as entering a new market or developing a new product. Rather than avoid all risk, leaders of successful organizations assess the risks inherent in any situation and use them to drive company vision, strategies, plans, and processes. This ExecBlueprint describes an integrated approach for managing performance, risk, and compliance through centralized governance processes. It is called “GRC” (governance, risk management, and compliance), and it provides a framework for sharing policies, processes, and documents at the enterprise level to improve communication, create organizational efficiencies, and reduce unnecessary risk. How can GRC benefit an organization? When leaders are able to define their “risk appetite” and quantify all the risks facing them, they can make more appro

Many organizations are harnessing performance management as a culture enhancer and valued benefit. By pivoting their approach, they’re increasing employee satisfaction, developing internal leaders, improving work relationships, and saving time.

In December 2017, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a study refresh to determine how enterprise organizations are structured from an IT departmental perspective. The study explored two types of IT: digital controllers and digital transformers; and the trends and challenges seen in PC provisioning. Digital controllers are often associated with top-down approach, linear structure, and emphasize security and accuracy. In contrast, digital transformers focus on innovation, employee-and customer-centricity, and prioritize speed and flexibility. By understanding the two groups, enterprises can overcome challenges that arise from PC life-cycle management. By investing in existing PC management tools and partnering with a company that specializes in PC deployment and management, firms can empower employees to better serve customers.

Consumers worldwide continue to adopt and use technology in their shopping experience.
Faced with rising customer expectations and increasing competitive pressures, retailers
now are prioritizing in-store innovation. Many retailers have adopted multichannel
implementations, in which mobile, web, and in-store shopping are enabled but not delivered
consistently to the customer. The next step in this evolution is an omnichannel strategy, now
being deployed by some retailers, which presents a consistent shopping experience across
mobile, web, and in-store channels. Omnichannel also enables retailers to integrate back-end
infrastructure technologies (e.g., servers, databases, etc.) and cloud-based services (e.g., loyalty
programs, personalized recommendations, inventory management, etc.) to improve many
aspects of store and enterprise operations.
An omnichannel strategy relies on several core and supporting technologies. The key factors in
evaluating any omnichannel-enabling solution includ
