In order to be successful an organisation must be able to mange the relationship between the overall business strategy and the strategies in different resource areas such as HR, finance, information or technology. Managing these resource areas in line with the overall business strategy is key to making those strategies deliverable. Human resources (the knowledge, competencies and behaviours that people bring with them to work) are central to successful implementation of strategy and as both HR managers and Line managers are essential to leading and motivating individuals, both must be involved in the formulation and implementation of HR strategy.

Review:

"The approach taken by these authors adds something new to the existing market. There is a good balance between theory and concepts on one hand and practical applications and cases on the other hand."

Prof. dr. Gerard H.M. Evers, Professor of Human Capital Valuation, Tilburg University, The Netherlands

"The authors appreciate the critical role that a human resource strategy can and should play in an overall organisational strategy. The text encourages the reader to explore the links between management issues and HR strategy."

Marjorie Corbridge, Associate Dean (Curriculum Development) at the University of Portsmouth Business School.
