Organizations today are facing heightened challenges in their efforts to perform effectively. These challenges are reflected in the failure of many long-standing organizations and the shortened tenure of senior level executives. There is increasing agreement that the unique competitive advantage organizations have today lies in their people, their human resource management practices and their cultures. All other elements of production can be readily obtained, bought or copied. We are now in the era of human capital; to be successful organizations need to unleash the talents of their people. Fortunately we now have considerable understanding of what high performing organizations look like. However, a large gap still exists between what we know and what managers actually do. With contributions from a team of leading academics and practitioners, Building More Effective Organizations provides an extensive survey of human resource management and the organizational practices associated with the high performance of individuals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Burke and Cooper, two distinguished and prolific authors in management, have managed to put together an impressive text blending contributions from some of the leading scholars in the academy with contributions from senior executives from the top blue chip corporations. This book is a 'must-read' for both students and practitioners struggling with adapting innovative policies and practices which will enable their organizations to be effective in the 21st century global competitive scene. The book is informative and provocative and is highly recommended.' Simon L. Dolan, Ramon Llull Chair in Human Resource Management, ESADE Business School Barcelona, and Editor-in-Chief of Cross Cultural Management
'Ronald Burke and Cary Cooper state that the competitive advantage organizations have today lies in their people and their cultures, and I think they are right. In this book they bring together relevant research to back up their statement and I think they did a great job.' Marc J. Schabracq, University of Amsterdam
