Description - High Impact HR by David S. Weiss

It book challenges the traditional view of HR as a service function and replaces it with a vision of HR as an internal business accountable for the return on investment of essential corporate assets - people and organizational processes. It provides a practical route-map for transforming HR's role, priorities, accountabilities, and organizational design in order to align it with the rest of the company in a common strategic direction and deliver better value to the external customer.
