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.

Review:

I adopted this text for several reasons: It seems to be most strategic of the strategic HR textbooks, in that it requires students to synthesize across different readings and draw some conclusions from various points of view. Second, I chose this book for my executive students because their usual preference for writing and reading is concise, to the point. The reading structure of this book creates almost an "executive summary" feel, but it is reasonably complete and cohesive throughout. Third, my HR colleague on our faculty has used this book for several years, and there are advantages to both of us using the same book. In the past I used Baron and Krep's book, but my students absolutely hated it. They seem to like this book fairly well. The chapters are concise and to the point, which is great, especially for my executive students. The organization is easy to follow, and the readings have been picked out that coincide nicely with the topics at hand.

I liked the mix of theory, readings and cases. I was looking for a text that provided access to current writings and thought on SHRM. This was the only text I found that had this more creative approach.

Higher-quality writing and research-based chapters.

The text was adopted largely for the reproduced articles/readings. It was great to have several seminal articles in one book.
