Example text

In terms of our debate on the meaning of HRM, Legge (1989:40) suggests that 'in many cases, the use of the 'new label' is no more or less than a reflection of the 'new right' at the place of work ... ' There is no doubt that in order to survive organisations need to be competitive. In terms of our concern with the NHS it has been stated that: The agenda for 1994 will be a substantial reduction in the number of independent trusts, the closure of hospitals, bed reduction and staff reduction for hospital-based trusts, and substantial reorganisations for community trusts.

Associated with this 'stronger' version of HRM is the idea that there is a philosophical underpinning to it which sharply marks it off from Taylorism and indeed from the pluralistic conventions of industrial relations orthodoxy. The analysis allows for a distinction between what he calls the 'hard' and 'soft' versions of HRM. In the hard version the human resource is as manipulable and disposable as other factors of production. In the soft version the emphasis is on the specific human contribution which gives this factor a unique value, often embodied in the slogan 'our people are our most valued asset'.

Also, it requires keeping far less than half the needed inventory on site, results in far fewer defects, and produces a greater and ever growing variety of products. For an interesting discussion of some of the terminology used in this quotation, see Lyddon (1993). The distinction should be between production methods which rely on large stocks of materials, capital, buildings, land and labour, and those which use less. Mass production, as Wickens (1993) points out, can also be lean. Lyddon reminds us that methods of production are usually classified into job, batch and flow.
