Summary The case discusses the human resource initiatives adopted by Harley-Davidson Motor Company (H-D), the leading manufacturer of heavy-weight motorcycles in the US, to encourage greater employee participation and collaboration. In 1992, H-D adopted circle based organization structure in its efforts to foster teamwork among the employees and do away with the command-and-control leadership style of management. The case also discusses another major HR initiative that H-D implemented in 2004; the deployment of 'Accenture Human Capital Development Framework' (HCDF). This initiative was undertaken by the company in order to bring about major improvements in its human resource functions, and thereby attain improved business performance. The case describes the HCDF in detail and the benefits reaped by H-D after its implementation
