Overview

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.

Frustrated at not being able to find a MBA course text truly stressing the strategic aspect of human resource management, Mello (management, Towson U., Baltimore, MD) developed this reader of articles from the 1990s by the author and other HR experts reprinted from such journals as , , and . The 14 selections appear under the headings of the context of strategic HR management, its implementation, and case studies. Timely topics include the impact of technology, workforce demographic trends, Federal anti- discrimination laws, international assignments, and unions today. Includes critical thinking, experiential, and Internet-based exercises; and a supporting Web site. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
