Utilizing SIHRM as a resource which can confer sustainable competitive advantage, Taylor et al.
s (1996) formulation presents a typology of SIHRM along with the appropriate international business type.
This model considers what the appropriate SIHRM type may be to link to a multi-domestic strategy (Porter, 1986).
s typology of SIHRM (training) is quite a useful model in pointing management toward matching an appropriate level of training with a particular type of international business strategy.
Given the extremely broad scope of the framework and the embryonic stage of SIHRM research, several researchers have focused on selected framework elements for investigation in specific research projects (e.
Recognizing the importance of the EU for Australia, the present study explores exogenous factors which are Influential for SIHRM in the EU, from the perspective of Australian MNEs.
These strategic MNE components have been shown to hold implications for SIHRM (Kobrin 1994), particularly through integrative mechanisms including bureaucratic (Ghoshal/Nohria 1989), centralization (Child 1973), normative integration (Edstrom/Galbraith 1977), and critical flows of capital, technology, and people (Bartlett/Ghoshal 1992).
Schuler, Dowling, and De Cieri (1993) identified four factors endogenous to MNEs which influence SIHRM, including: organizational competitive strategy (Dowling/Schuler 1990; Schuler/Jackson 1987); headquarters international orientation (Heenan/Perlmutter 1979); organizational structure (Dowling 1989; Brewster/Hegewisch 1994); and experience in international business (Dowling 1989).
The most important conceptualizations on SIHRM include the following: Adler/Ghadar (1991), Milliman/Von Glinow/Nathan (1991), Wunderer (1992), Adler/Bartholomew (1992), Kumar (1992), Schuler/Dowling/De Cieri (1993), Beechler/Bird/Raghuram (1993), and Taylor/Beechler/Napier (1996).
SIHRM as human resource management activities, which result from the
The first aim is to develop a theory-based model for SIHRM.
As stated above, the reasoning of the model of SIHRM is mainly based on transaction cost theory.
