Some have probably already found this . . .

To add a contact (shortcut) to home screen in ICS -

1) from home screen, press and hold in empty space, then
2) click add to Home screen
3) choose APPs
4) choose Widgets (top center)
5) search (use left menu sub button), type in contact (in search window at top)
6) then choose 4x1 or 1x1.  1x1 seems more useful for my applications
7) press and hold the 1x1 (or 4x1) and drag to home screen
Eyes Rolling select the contact of your choice

then you have the shortcut to the contact that you can move or use with ease

Another option is to use a contact folder.
