Taskin Laurent;
The connections between Strategy and HRM are studied through three different lenses:
I. Understanding. Existing traditional (Context, Best Fit, Resource-based...) and emerging (Stakeholders, Managing Humanly model...) conceptualization and models in strategic HRM are discussed, including in the assumptions they share on the roles and contributions of HRM, work, and workers.
II. Analyzing. Students must be able to identify what kind of strategic HRM is at stake in different organisations.
III. Contributing. Based on a case study, conducted in an organization, students are asked to formulate recommendations in terms of SHRM.
