Education for a New and Critical Discipline
Over 80% of market value in today's global markets is allocated to intangible assets. Increasingly, this is a measure of talent in the form of strategic knowledge, creativity, adaptability and execution in the workforce. In this new talent economy, competitive advantage relies on integrated and measurable practices for acquiring, aligning, engaging, advancing and retaining the right people.
Though talent is now a powerful competitive lever, most organizations continue to employ industrial-era management and HR practices. HCI Education challenges these old paradigms, and enables new practices, by offering the first curriculum for Strategic Talent Management and New Economy Leadership.
HCI courses are offered in major metropolitan centers and on the web, year-round. Courses may also be tailored and delivered as onsite corporate training, or licensed as an enterprise train-the-trainer program.
