HR fulfils administrative functions within the firms. Susan Meisinger identifies five specialisations HR professionals need Internal Consultants - to train and empower line managers for effective employment relationship practice. Vendor Manager - to determine which functions can be better handled internally or externally, thus, selecting vendors. While plenty of pure pipeline businesses are still highly competitive, when platforms enter the same marketplace, the platforms virtually always win.
Few functional managers see themselves as HR managers, and concerned more with their core area. Difficulty to quantify many outcomes and benefits of HR programmes. Choose an organisation and find out its traditional and strategic HR roles. What other strategic HR roles can be performed by the HR department of that organisation?
What are the barriers of executing SHRM in that organisation? Cultural - country, society, values, norms, beliefs, practices, etc. The decision is usually mutual between both companies It offers the stockholders of the company stakes in the acquiring company in exchange for the surrender of their stock. It is a transitioning of individuals, teams, and organisation to a desired future state.
Choose an organisation and find out its work system design. What are the disadvantages of this work system? Do you suggest any re-design of this work system? What advantages do you think it may bring? What is the recent change the organisation had gone through?
What obstacles the organisation had faced to manage the change? How did the organisation manage it? Employers choose the candidate who most closely fits this ideal profile. Exchange Approach - a process that focuses on an exchange or negotiation between employer and employee. Both parties have a set of expectations related to their current and future needs and values.
Decision is taken based on an increased amount of information is exchanged to determine close fit. A viable psychological contract is negotiated. Processual Approach - a process that considers selection as a learning process.
Employer attempts to learn about the candidate e. Evaluation of the decision made Experiential Learning Cycle by by the manager. Selection Errors measure. Confusion - managers are unsure about how to achieve things through subordinates.
Anxiousness - subordinates worry about how to prove their bosses that they have met the target. Uncertainty - people fear the unseen future, what consequence may the performance appraisal result bring.
Judgemental - modus operandi of appraisal system is more judgemental and faultfinding. Obscureness - difficulty in identifying variables, KPI, benchmark, and definitions of performance scale. The trainee is able to habits act as an obstacle transfer the learning to in the learning process.
High pay equity increases employee satisfaction with his or her job, low pay equity increases the potential for absenteeism, grievances, strikes, and turnover. Personal judgement based on unsettled and obscure parameters. So what is Strategic Human Resource Development? Emergent forms of thinking within both the natural and the human sciences have begun to challenge traditionally held views about the nature of knowledge, the status of science; the question of truth and the ultimate purpose of progress.
Given this changing context there is a need to re-examine the fundamental premises of HRD. This paper has explored four different views of the nature of management, of HRD, and of the strategic role that HRD plays in organisational development. Each of these could be seen as a form of thinking, a way of life.
Clearly these are more like archetypes than they are a true statement of what exists. If nothing else, the sort of terminology used in the previous sentence would not be appropriate for all approaches. A change in approach requires a change in the language and meaning that is used. The very act of stepping back in an attempt to examine the different approaches is, in fact, a statement of approach. As we step back we are saying that there is a phenomenon here that we can explore.
We can not really step out of this conundrum, but we can try and understand where it might lead us. If we accept that our existence is interpretative, chaotic and complex it is easier to accept that our ways of managing and structuring are normally individual and collective attempts to make sense of this complexity.
Each of these belief systems may or may not be appropriate for the circumstances that the people concerned encounter. We can therefore shift our area of study - towards the examination of these belief systems in terms of their outcomes - returning to the dependant variable after Swanson In both theorising about HRD and in the practice of HRD we can no longer assume that a particular intervention at a particular time will produce a known effect. We lose the gloss of certainty that many HRD professionals feel is necessary for their work as academics, consultants, trainers etc.
HRD and learning are becoming more central to the needs of the nation as in Watson, however, it is not all forms of HRD, learning or knowledge acquisition that are being championed. The certainty of ex-cathedra provision is limited in its ability to support empowerment or strategic thinking - instead developers are turning to action learning, the valuing of experience, and explorations of holistic provision Argyris, ; Lee, b; Pascale, ; Revans, ; Senge, This shift in provision further increases the complexity and uncertainty of inquiry into the nature and practice of HRD.
In adopting a phenomenological perspective we are moving away from inquiry into a reasonably coherent area of study and practice, and into a messy arena that resembles a battle ground of social systems. HRD, however, is more than the academic study of social systems.
In 'pure' social groupings friends, family the activities of the system are largely focused upon maintaining 'successful' interaction, such that members feel satisfaction and sense of belonging through this interaction. These points go further than a post-modern form of cultural relativism. From this perspective, agency also involves the search for the patterning of the whole, for dynamic structures, an understanding of the possibilities and their links - a holistic approach.
Holistic agency is therefore about individual action or non-action within a relativistic world see Lee, a; Lee et al. I suggest that whatever the label, many agents of change SHRD professionals find themselves working in this way, and that this is an approach to be studied and to be fostered.
The challenge is in the need to facilitate a coherent and co-regulated view of the organisation through influencing its processes in a way that captures relevant information and learns from this. Often most learning comes from the outrageous or deviant, thus it is important to include the ability to capture new items, feeding these back to the whole, both for consideration and to indicate possible trends.
This approach recognises that there is often no clearly identifiable 'cause' to incidents but that a collection of little things can combine to make them go well or badly.
Whilst much of strategic theory has been developed and can best be interpreted in relation to large bureaucracies, in recognising fundamental processes within an organisation, this approach is applicable whether the organisation is a bureaucracy, SME or virtual network; whether it is multinational or non-profit making - though the challenge of influencing these processes might be different in each case.
Thus the study and practice of SHRD allows for a range of different functions and activities. In essence this paper is a plea for further study of SHRD.
The organisational world is increasingly adopting views propounded by SHRD professionals, both academics and practitioners. However, if SHRD is to be legitimised as an academic discipline or as an important aspect of practice, then further attention needs to be paid to the conceptual base from which we work.
This plea is addressed to both academics and practitioners as both groups face the challenge of making sense of the world, and, together, they are better able to construct the sort of complex and ever- changing picture that is SHRD.
