Should HR return to a narrower personnel role? Should key areas like talent management be relocated to leadership and management units outside of HR? The authors present a picture of what new lean HR structures might look like, arguing that in the tough current environment, HR could be facing diffusion or even disintegration as a result of new types of organizational design, business knowledge, and cross functional networks.
