Ramesh has brought out a very interesting book on the investment that is made in people  and how that is to be measured and optimized. Normally there is a notion of return on investment or return on capital deployed for goods and services. This for the first time, perhaps, there is a comprehensive approach to looking at investment in people and the ROI derived through rigorous and comprehensive metrics and data.

Data to information, to analytics, insights that need to be actioned, is well delineated. The flip side is that just sometimes, many of the people side of contributions cannot be quantified. The book treads the line of the art of the possible and for the reader to draw their conclusions. A must read for CHROs and business leaders.
