The consultants at Arthur Andersen, under a motto proclaiming they realize the value of people, have been focusing on this so-called human capital side of business through a proprietary approach thats based upon their experiences with firms like Land Rover Vehicles, IBM, Mobil Oil, and the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. Previously offered only to clients, this methodology is now laid out for all to see (and use) in Delivering on the Promise: How to Attract, Manage, and Retain Human Capital. Partners Brian Friedman, James Hatch, and David M. Walker present a step-by-step exploration of the process and what it may mean to businesses in the future- along the way they explain how to evaluate existing personnel and personnel-related programs in relation to specific company goals and how to realign corporate focus whenever necessary. Individual chapters follow the five stages of human-capital development as identified in Andersons Five Squared program: clarification, assessment, design, implementation, and monitoring. --Howard Rothman
