    "if you want a seat at the boardroom table" Respectfully, I think a different table was meant. There's usually only one executive officer at Board level - the CEO.

    Otherwise, Susan makes a fair point about needing a deep understanding of the business. It seems a no-brainer for HR people to comprehend how their firm makes money (or delivers other forms of value), but I continue to encounter people in HR roles who have little or no idea of how their organisation really works. "Oh, that's technical stuff - we don't get involved" is not uncommonly heard.

    The HR leaders should become business partner and involved in all the business functions...from design to marketing, the role should not limit to advice but in implementation
