Managing managers in Europe


  • Bournois, Frank
  • Chauchat, Jean-Hugues


To what extent is Human Resources Management in companies ready for 1992? Although a clear, definitive answer cannot be given at this point in time, certain trends and patterns are becoming increasingly clear and are indicating likely developments in the run-up to 1993. The authors base their discussion on more than 40 interviews with Human Resources Directors and Managing Directors of large European companies. Using a statistical method of data classification, they suggest a framework of companies in which the main differentiating factor is that of corporate strategy and its orientation.
