"The original book has proved to be very valuable for my HR business partner clients, both in discussing the guiding concepts and ideas and in providing practical methods and tools to make the theory work in daily practice. It's the hands-on approach that makes it a book that practitioners actually read and reread" Wilfred Verweij MSc, Senior Learning Consultant/Lecturer, Rotterdam School of Management Erasmus University, The Netherlands "As the BP role has evolved, this pragmatic and insightful approach captures the essence of the changes in the function and offers guidance on embedding it into the organisation to produce fully effective HR partners." Gill Whensley, Chartered FCIPD and HR Director, Spofforths LLP "Business Partnering is both a mindset and a skill set - especially the ability to build and maintain effective value-adding business relationships. In a very real sense the authors are helping to move the field of Business Partnering forward by describing not just the 'what' and the 'why' of Business Partnering but also the 'how'." Linda Holbeche, HR Professional and former Director of Research and Policy, CIPD, UK
