HRM and Performance

According to Delery and Doty, there are three different approaches to HRM — universalistic, configurational, and contingent. When considering these and the relatively confusing evidence that either reject or support these perspectives, the need arises to clarify whether strategy at both business and corporate levels matter. Also, in the context of the link between performance and HRM, it is important to note in what sense strategy matters. This chapter looks into the evolution of a wide variety of approaches in strategic management. As it examines the classic approaches, it also discusses the significance of environment, culture, politics, power, and other such integral elements to the concept of strategy.
