Overview

Milkovich/Boudreau is now in its eighth edition,the longest- and largest selling HRM text on Irwin's list. The heart of this book remains the authors' belief that what sets successful organizations apart is how they manage human resources. Their book is differentiated by its continuing focus on "so what?" So what is the impact and relevance of HR programs,scholarly research,and academic theories on achieving competitive advantage and fair treatment for employees? The text is further differentiated by its diagnostic approach,which guides managers' decisions. Using the diagnostic model,students assess relevant conditions,set objectives,make decisions,and evaluate their impact. Another differentiating feature is that the book is full of examples drawn from the authors' extensive hands-on consulting experience with leading companies worldwide.
