Applying an integrative framework, the authors review 20 years' worth of empirical and theoretical research in an attempt to reconcile often conflicting conceptual models and competing empirical results. This book presents much of the relevant research in the context of the critical strategic decisions that executives are often forced to make with regard to human resource investments and developments.
