The ability of human resource management functions depends on a strong strategic perspective of the direction of an organization in the short and long terms, alongside a synthesized approach to managing and developing human assets. The integration of the human resource management function in a business organisation is therefore the critical point at which strategy is interpreted into values, skills and competences as well as capacity requirements in order to succeed against a performance framework. Issues such as talent management, workforce analysis, reputation and risk, high performance work systems and the international dimensions of business are fundamental to this area of study. Engagement and internal stakeholder processes underpin the strategic management culture in organisations. In turn, these processes feed in to strategic management, strategy formation, visioning and implementation issues.
