Introduction There is a growing belief that one of the most significant factors which will contribute to future business success is the effective management and development of people within the organization. A study by IBM (1992), covering some 2,000 organizations in over 20 countries, identified that both line managers and human resource (HR) specialists see HR as a critical success factor in achieving business strategic goals. Sparrow et al. (1994), in a detailed analysis of the IBM study, point out that the view of participants is that an organization's people provide the only realistic basis for achieving a sustainable competitive advantage.
