Abstract

It is with tremendous sadness that we mourn the loss of our friend and colleague, David P. Lepak. Dave died suddenly on December 7, 2017, at the age of 46. Dave was the Berthiaume Endowed Chair of Business Leadership at the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and one of the true global thought leaders in the field of strategic human resource management (HRM). He leaves behind a legacy of personal and professional contributions that extend well beyond his short time with us.From the earliest stage of his career, even as a graduate student, Dave had perspective, insight, and “traction”—the ability to get things done—that distinguished him among his peers. In his unassuming way, he challenged us to approach research not only to help organizations manage human resources (HR) more effectively, but to help them approach strategy more effectively. Our research on HR architecture was designed to frame how firms use multiple configurations of human capital, employment options, and HR practices to improve strategic capability and performance.Throughout his career, Dave continued to encourage the profession to think more expansively about what it means to manage human resources strategically.
