2024 Strategic HR Capability Development programmes

Jon and I are lucky in that we can spend most of our time developing our existing capabilities. Jon thinks he spends about 70% of his time learning, although that includes work he undertakes as away of growing a particular skill. However, even with this luxury, these days, we both struggle to keep up with all the new insights which can help deliver greater impacts from HR.

Staying up to date as an HR practitioner, and ensuring that your own practice is informed by all the new opportunities which exist these days must therefore be next to impossible!

However, this is why the Strategic HR Academy is here to help:


Signal vs noise

There’s lots of information around these days, but almost too much! You can use generative AI to filter this down, but that dumbs it down as well. Join the Academy, spend 10 to 20 hours working through a course, and perhaps a similar amount of time discussing application with peers within a study group. We’ll take you through all the best content (models, theories, practices, case studies, etc) and new insights you won’t find anywhere else.


Provocation vs standard training

The Academy does provide training courses, but they’re not like programmes you’ll find elsewhere. All our content is designed to challenge you, to help you think, and then to go away and deliver more impact than you have before.

The Academy is built around a very strategic and people-centric philosophy, but we’re not expecting you to agree with everything we suggest. The aim is to help you develop your own insights about what will work in your own organisation. And you can still follow the processes provided in the courses to build your organisation around your own aims and objectives.


Dedicated time with leading consultant and experienced practitioner

All courses are delivered, and study groups are facilitated by Jon Ingham, a recognised HR influencer, and author and co-author with Dave Ulrich.

You don’t just get to hear from Jon, you’ll spend time with him, and other practitioners, helping gain deep insights into your course content, and how this can be applied in a way that’s right for you, and your organisation.


Flipped learning to optimise your time

Courses are built around pre-recorded video which you can study in your own time. You can take these independently, and Jon is always available to discuss.

Or you can study a course as part of a study group, taking place over two months. Most discussion, Q&A and activities are undertaken through asynchronous online discussion, so again, you can learn, individually and together, around your work commitments, wherever you are in the world. But we also run four or more online calls within each group, so everyone gets to know each other and to have some deeper conversations than might be possible in the discussion group.


The Academy is currently running the following courses, together with dates of the forthcoming study groups:


Are you going to be able to successfully reboot your organisation without some support?

If not, please join the Academy over the next few months. And let me or Jon know if you’d like to discuss. You can also book time with Jon here: https://calendly.com/joningham/strategic-hr-academy-support
