9781412919012: Strategic Human Resource Management: Theory and Practice (Published in association with The Open University)

The Second Edition of this highly successful course reader provides a comprehensive, contemporary, and critical review of the key issues in strategic human resource management. The book draws upon the work of some of the most influential and insightful writers on the subject of the strategic management of people in organizations. Through a series of carefully edited articles, students can explore current thinking on topics as diverse as performance, pay, process reengineering, structure, ethics, culture, change and leadership. This volume moves beyond strategic human resource management from the perspective of the policy setter.

From the Back Cover:

Strategic Human Resource Management provides a thorough overview of all aspects of human resource strategy and is designed as a bechmark text for undergraduate and MBA students. The concept of human resource strategy has caused considerable controversy, and the authors critically examine current theory and the historical origins of human resource strategy in order to better understand this. They do this by taking a distinctive approach which is:.
a) thematic - using the conventional categories of HRM as route to understanding power-broking and decision-making in organizations.
b) problematic - exploring the tensions and contradictions inherent in most strategic HR interventions.
c) critical - focusing at the strategic level, asking searching questions as how HR 'strategies' are conceived, pursued and reconstructed.
d) accessible - drawing upon extensive experience in preparing Open University teaching material and incorporating international cases wherever possible.

About the Author:

Graeme Salaman is Professor of Organization Studies at the Open University Business School

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Second Edition of this highly successful course reader provides a comprehensive, contemporary and critical review of the key issues in strategic human resource management. The book draws upon the work of some of the most influential and insightful writers on the subject of the strategic management of people in organizations. Through a series of carefully edited articles, students can explore current thinking on topics as diverse as performance, pay, process reengineering, structure, ethics, culture, change and leadership. This volume moves beyond strategic human resource management from the perspective of the policy setter. The book informs but also questions and, while recognising the legitimacy and importance of management perspectives, also captures the experience of workers on the receiving end of strategic initiatives. Students will be encouraged to consider core issues and difficult questions, such as: How should employees respond to the missionary zeal of their employers? How can we explain the increasing influence of gangmasters? What are the effects of management training on the identities of managers? Has strategic HRM been transformed from a model of commitment to one of exploitation? Strategic Human Resource Management has been designed to meet the needs of course teaching at advanced undergraduate and postgraduate levels. It is an invaluable text that will help define the complex agenda of human resource management, strategy and organisations for students. Bookseller Inventory # AAX9781412919012
