Hello Om
I agree with the article.If HR needs to evolve itself as stratagic partner in business, it needs to align HR initiatives to business goals for which it needs to understand the business and the way it works and try to establsih a direct impacting relationship between the initiatives and the buisness and develop metrics that can measure it. For example, they sould dvelop a tool as to what was the output of an employee who was disenaged and the increase in output after he is engaged. Probably some research and analysis needs to be done to develop these tools but it is worth it. It is heartening to note that HR is increasingly becoming conscious to play this role of late.
