Containing 26 entirely new cases from a wide range of countries, Blackwell Cases in Human Resource and Change Management vividly captures the crucial contemporary issues and trends in HR and strategic change management.
Drawing on in-depth research by leading authorities in the field, each case, accompanied by analyses and lists of further readings, offers real life illustrations of modern theory and practice and includes pertinent discussion questions for students.
In addition to all of the 'core' areas of resourcing, developing, IR, and equal opportunities, there is also coverage of process engineering, mergers and acquisitions, ways of limiting the need for redundancies and insight into how managers can learn to enact strategic change.
Blackwell Cases in Human Resource and Change Management is intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students of HRM and change management.
