Capabilities for HR Analytics Success (Governance, Strategy & Focus)

Wouldn’t it be great if we could just plunk in an HR analyst, build an HR analytics function, or buy a slick piece of technology, and we’d reap the rewards – capability in analytics, improved business performance, and heightened credibility for HR.
