The article looks at the claim of Steve Davies of Haringey Council in London, England that measuring human capital has helped the Council improve efficiencies. Aside from measuring a person's performance, Davis says human capital measurement is also about how effective an organisation is at managing people performance. He adds that the approach allows the Council to identify which processes are inefficient, and which managers need more support and training.
