In a world of buzzwords, “strategic” has become one of the biggest in business. HR professionals and line managers strive to be more strategic, often without fully understanding the term’s meaning.

For the past 26 years, an association called the Canadian Human Resources Planners has helped a select group of senior HR professionals and other executives looking for a solution to the strategic puzzle as it relates to people management.

But recently the association felt the name no longer reflected its membership or its mandate. As of Dec. 1, the Canadian Human Resources Planners became the Strategic Capability Network.
