A review of key research in strategic human resource management. Our "Routledge Companion to Strategic Human Resource Management" (Storey, Wright and Ulrich 2009) mapped the field in a fairly comprehensive manner. In this new, short-form, book we develop the argument that one of the crucial elements of organizational performance is the way work is organized. By ‘organized’ here we refer to the array of: skill/talent packages both within an organizations boundary and across global competency clusters; skill development, reward, talent flow, culture, etc. Second, we focus on current and emergent challenges. The ‘package’ of HR approaches has changed over time and patterns can be observed. Each age brings its own challenges and recipes for meeting those challenges. Hence, this new volume pays special regard to the HR implications arising from radically altering contexts – economic, social and technological.
