Colbert, B.A. (2004). "The Complex Resource-Based View: Implications for Theory and Practice in Strategic Human Resource Management", Academy of Management Review 29 (3), 341-358.


ABSTRACT: I consider the implications for research and practice in strategic human resource management (SHRM) of a complex, living-systems extension of the resource-based view (RBV). I do so by demonstrating that concepts from complexity align well with the RBV, and I extend the RBV by considering critical but difficult aspects commonly identified in the RBV strategy literature. An integrated framework for SHRM is presented, allowing an application of complexity principles at the appropriate level of abstraction in the HR system.
