Abstract

Ken Kamoche, who lectures in human resource management at Birmingham Business School, argues that flaws in the assumptions underlying our understanding of ‘strategy’ are encouraging an inappropriate conception of strategic human resource management (SHRM). the notion of strategy which emanates from orthodox economic theory ensures that SHRM is subservient to a dominant ‘organisational imperative’. This process is reinforced by key socio‐political factors which are diminishing the significance of the ‘human’ component of SHRM. He goes on to suggest how SHRM might be reconstituted to be a more useful concept
