Group Consultation: Managing Organizational Human Resources

A three-meeting series led by Major-General (ret.) Orna Barbivai, former head of the IDF Manpower Directorate (March-April 2016)

This was a series of three meetings offering the opportunity to learn about the link between management in general and managing human resources; to examine together issues that arise in the field, and possible solutions; and to gain new knowledge, and learn from the unique experiences of Major-General Orna Barbivai, who as head of the IDF Manpower Directorate oversaw human resources in Israel’s largest organization.

​Each of the three sessions addressed a major human resource management issue of relevance to graduates and their organizations: the leadership-management challenge presented by the distance between the needs of the system and the needs of the individual; decision-making processes in a changing reality, with an emphasis on human resources; and maximizing the organization’s human advantages - how can quality and excellence be assured?
