With my CBS colleague Dr. Dana Minbaeva and Professor Scott Snell from the School of Industrial and Labor Relations, Cornell University, I will be editing a special issue of the HRM field’s flagship journal, Human Resource Management (!), published by the UMichigan Business School.  Here is the Call for Papers.

The subject of this special issue is “Human Resource Management and Knowledge Processes.” The aim is to build theory and conduct empirical work relating to how human resource management practices influence the sharing, building and integration of knowledge in firms. How “people” (and the organizational framework they interact in, including HRM practices) may contribute to the creation of competitive advantage is an increasingly important issue in strategic management. It is also a subject that transaction cost scholars should potentially be able to contribute significantly to.  We hope to receive contributions from not only “traditional” HRM scholars but also from strategic management and other scholars with an interest in these issues.

To stimulate interest in the special issue, my Center organized a two-day workshop last week. The program and most of the papers are here.

Entry filed under: - Foss -, Management Theory, Strategic Management, Theory of the Firm.
