This text offers a truly innovative, integrative framework that examines the traditional functional HR areas from a strategic perspective. This text is organized into two sections. The first section, Chapters 1-7, examines the context of strategic HR and develops a framework and conceptual model for the practice of strategic HR. The second section, Chapters 8-14, examines the actual practice and implementation of strategic HR through a discussion of strategic issues that need to be addressed while developing specific programs and policies related to the traditional functional areas of HR (staffing, training, performance management, etc.). The integrative framework that requires linkage between, consistency among these functional HR activities, and the approach toward writing about these traditional functional areas from a strategic perspective distinguish the text from what is currently on the market.

The text is clearly written and organized. It presents a general review of topics and includes current issues. The articles are selected well to expand on topics in the text.
I especially liked the introductory examples at the beginning of each chapter, the addition of exercises for the students to apply their learning and use critical thinking skills, and the additional readings . . . I think this book hits all the key hot topics . . . I think this book does an excellent job capturing the critical issues and latest thinking on the strategic use of HRM.
. . . No book (like this) currently exists for a graduate level treatment of HR.. . . Few, if any books start with the assumption that the student will NOT be working in HR. Moreover, few books examine HR issues from a general manager perspective.
. . . I thought the chapters were well done. The readings were relevant and current and the writing is clear and concise. I generally am not attracted to texts that are primarily readings, but this is one of the better ones.
