Abstract

The thesis attempts to answer three questions about the connections between manpower strategy and organisation strategy through a study of the experiences of 22 organisations located in Cleveland between 1980 and 1986. The firms included in the study were engaged in chemicals, steel, engineering, brewing, banking, local government, education, health and retailing. The questions are: 1. How are manpower systems adapted by managers to cope with a radically altered environment? 2. What competitive strategies are deployed by organisations? 3. What manpower strategies are adopted to implement the chosen competitive strategy?
