The paper "Strategic Human Resource Management" is an outstanding example of a management literature review. This area will focus on the recent history of Strategic Human Resource Management, its applications in various businesses and its popularity as a present-day alternative to the normal Human Resource Management used in many companies. The section will outline all the growing trends in the business platform that are related to the SHRM. As the concept is developed, the section will seek to point to the important concern regarding the usefulness of SHRM in the modern-day business practice.
It will lead to the importance of evaluating the use of SHRM in business in terms of finding out whether the overall effect is positive or negative. This section will also justify the validity of the study, whose main importance is to find out whether SHRM is beneficial or not in its current usage for most businesses. As in the dissertation statement, two areas of business concern will be evaluated and divided into two aspects. 1.2 Definitions of Key Concepts Under the definition of key terms and concepts part, there will be defined Strategic HRM, business values in the modern business concept, business productivity, and economic analysis of a business.
