Produktbeschreibung

Presenting findings from research into Sweden's leading multinationals this book focuses on engineering companies operating in global industries such as pharmaceutical, aerospace, packing systems and automotive. It explores research and practice within the area of HRM focusing on project-based organizations.

In many companies today, people spend most of their time working in various types of projects. This book addresses the important question of what this means for the management of human resources at the operational level in the firm. The authors address questions such as: How do first-line managers handle their HR responsibilities when people work in co-located project teams most of the time? What role do project managers have in performing HRM activities? What strategies do individual project workers use to manage their own development while moving from project to project? And, what role do HR specialists have in adding value to the HRM system where operative HRM is really performed?
This book summarizes empirical research in a number of industries and firms, most notably in engineering and development contexts. The authors introduce a framework for HRM the HR quadriad that expands traditional views on the important relationships that are at the core for HRM activities at the operational level. The framework builds on the idea that HRM is carried out in interplay among four actors in the organization, namely line managers, project managers, individual workers and HR specialists. Accordingly, it seeks to identify the major challenges for each one of these players and illustrates the value of the framework to explain how some of the world's leading companies have responded to these challenges.

'We have in this volume an outstanding but far too rare combination of perspectives on a set of critical issues in contemporary management. The authors are well versed in the academic discussions and literature of modern project management. And they are able to combine this with valuable industrial experience. Their four-pronged approach should enable managers to better understand and deal with the many dilemmas and conflicts that develop in matrix organizations. At the same time, they lay out a valuable agenda for academic research. This book is essential reading for both managers of technology and scholars interested in organizing for innovative product development.' Thomas J. Allen Howard W. Johnson Professor of Management, Emeritus MIT Sloan School of Management Professor of Engineering Systems, Emeritus MIT School of Engineering 'This book makes an important evidence-based contribution to a challenging area of practice, managing people in project-based organizations. Bredin and Söderlund judiciously combine the latest HRM theory with practice-oriented research on project management. The result is a clear framework to guide HR decisions in the diverse array of project organizations.' Denise M. Rousseau H.J.Heinz II University Professor of Organizational Behavior and Public Policy, Heinz College and Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University, USA 'An innovative, refreshing book which deals with one of the most important current paradoxes of HRM: The research and practice within HRM has grown out of - and achieved its widespread acceptance through - the traditional hierarchical organization. However, more and more organizations are adopting new, alternative structures challenging the well-established roles of line managers and an HR function. Where does that leave the HRM concept? This is the highly relevant question addressed and answered in the present book.' Henrik Holt Larsen, Professor of Human Resource Management, Copenhagen Business School 'Bredin and Söderlund have integrated an impressive range of both their own empirical research and research by other scholars on the challenges and choices facing human resource managers and project workers and managers within project based work settings. Their HR Quadriad model provides a coherent framework for conceptualizing their case study insights into the distinctive roles played by project workers, project managers, line managers and HR specialists when engaged in different project-based work setting. Their research base is extensive and multi industry based and reflects many years of systematic case based research with large complex and technologically sophisticated organizations. Their book makes a distinctive contribution to the study and practice of HRM within project-based organizations.' Robert DeFillippi, Professor and Chair, Strategy and International Business Department Director, Center for Innovation and Change Leadership Sawyer Business School Suffolk University Well written, well-structured and appealing to readers, whether academics or practitioners. Maria Kapsalia, aUmea° School of Business and Economics (USBE), Sweden, and Rea Prouskab, Middlesex University Business School, United Kingdom 'Bredin and Söderlund have written a pioneering book which places the management of human resources at the centre of our analysis of temporary organizations. They provide a superb analysis of how people work and function in project-based organizations based on an in-depth study of firms and industries. The book raises questions that will shape our thinking about project-based organizations in the future. Anybody interested in project organizing and managing should have a copy close at hand on their bookshelf.' Andrew Davies, University College London 'Increasingly the focus within strategic HRM is on the involvement of line management. Especially in project based org
