Jac Fitz-enz is widely regarded as the father of human capital strategic analysis and measurement. He founded the famous Saratoga Institute and published the first human resource (HR) metrics in 1978 and the first international HR benchmarks in 1985. HR World cited him as one of the top-five "HR Management Gurus," IHRIM gave him its Chairman's Award for innovation, and SHRM chose him as one of the persons in the twentieth century who "significantly changed what HR does and how it does it." He has authored 12 books, over 350 articles, and trained 90,000 managers in 46 countries on strategic management and measurement. His 2010 book, The New HR Analytics, introduced predictive analytics to HR. Dr. Fitz-enz holds degrees from Notre Dame (BA), San Francisco State (MA), and USC (PhD) in organizational communications.
