Discussion Board 1

This discussion focuses on our theme for the week: Human Capital as the X Factor in the Competitive Edge Formula.

 

Read Boon, Eckardt, Lepak, and Boselie (2018) and chapter 1 of Nelson and Quick (2019). Discuss the merits of either strategic human capital (SHC) or strategic human resource management (HRM) as a beneficial strategic resource to enhance organizational performance. Discuss the merits of the approach you choose and explain how it contributes to the position that “Human Capital is the X factor in the competitive advantage formula.” Support your conclusions with specific evidence from Boon et al. (2018), Nelson and Quick (2019), module readings, or additional scholarly sources as needed.

 

Then, respond to at least two classmates; one of whom should support an approach different from the one you discussed. Explain whether you agree or disagree with your classmates’ perspectives and why. Support your responses with specific evidence from Boon et al. (2018), Nelson and Quick (2019), module readings, or additional scholarly sources as needed. Your responses should enhance the discussion and expand our knowledge of course concepts.
