As we move on to adopting a more empirical approach in the next few chapters, this chapter demonstrates the various aspects of the CBHRT model and provides a description of how organizations utilize the model to obtain viability on the long term through presenting the significant characteristics and findings of several case-study situations. The model's two dimensions — product market technology (PMT) and social cultural legal (SCL) — have aided in establishing an improved competitive advantage through shaping HRM policies. In the first case, this chapter focuses on how two furniture factories differed in the PMT dimension and imposed different strategies. The second case focuses on the SCL dimension and how various opportunities may arise through constructing new combinations of societal and market dimensions. The third case illustrates how long-term viability may be achieved through applying longevity and consistency to certain organizational configuration characteristics. Other cases presented are rooted on the profit sector, and the chapter also looks into a company that deals with temporary work agencies.

Keywords:   CBHRT model, market dimensions, societal dimensions, product market technology, social cultural level, viability, case studies
