Asks how the knowledge that human resource managers possess can be used by senior managers to achieve improved organizational performance. Discusses the nature of human resource management knowledge, looking at the influence of organizational and social science knowledge. Uses earlier research with four case study organizations as the basis for discussion of how human resource management knowledge is generated, interpreted and communicated. Sees the case studies as illustrating how the integration of human resource management with business strategy affects human resource knowledge, arguing that human resource management knowledge derives from the learning that occurs when human resource management theory is applied in an organizational context. Considers the implications of this for the link between human resource management and organizational performance
