Human Resource Management and Transformation Strategy


  • Luděk Rychetník


The quality of management has turned out to be the critical factor in the transformation of the Czech Republic to an open liberal market society. At the level of firms, privatised enterprise must be transformed into "high performance organisations". Initiatives as "lean production systems", "process reengineering", "human resource management", which have emerged in the West during the last 20 years, show the way. At the macro level, they can be interpreted as a search for a new post-fordist production system. Their common denominator is an effort to employ the whole personality of the worker his/her mind and creativity as well as his/her hands. They involve a difficult, long-run cultural change within the firm, a change in the whole approach to management, its development to a new level. The government, employers organisations and trade unions can significantly contribute to this transformation.
