Strategic human resource development: towards a conceptual framework to understand its contribution to dynamic capabilities

  Dynamic capabilities have assumed major importance in the strategy and human
resource management literatures. However, discussion of their contribution to strategic
human resource development (SHRD) is nascent. We introduce the concept of
‘dynamic’ strategic human resource development capabilities (DSHRDCs) and propose
a framework consisting of (a) enabling factors, (b) specific components, (c) underlying
processes, and (d) unique SHRD dynamic capabilities. We view a dynamic capabilities
approach as a useful lens to understand how SHRD contributes to organizational
performance through the development of capabilities. We discuss each component of
the framework and propose possible directions for future research and implications for
practice.
