Example text

The aim of this chapter is to provide a basis for understanding the concept of strategic human resource management (SHRM) by describing the fundamental nature of business strategy, bearing in mind the role of SHRM as described in the next chapter – that of enabling the organization to achieve its strategic goals. One of the purposes of this chapter is to counter the belief that business strategy is a highly rational affair that provides a firm basis for HR strategy.

They can be categorized as follows: ●● ●● ●● ●● The basic concept of competitive advantage, which describes what the strategy is there to achieve and how it will do this.

It used to be regarded as a logical, step-by-step affair that was described by Whittington (1993) as the classical approach – strategy formulation as a rational process of deliberate calculation.
