It is often the case that in both research paradigms, but particularly in the universalist paradigm, researchers and commentators resolve this problem by simply ignoring it.
Thus many of the seminal texts in our field draw their data from one level but are written as if the analysis applies at all Michael Morley Chris Brewster et al. Many of these texts are produced in one country and base their work on a small number of by now well-known cases.
As long as they are read by specialists in the relevant country with interests in these kinds of organisations, this may not be too much of a problem.
But the world, and especially the academic world in our subject, is becoming ever more international. This is a major problem in relation to the US literature. The cultural hegemony of US teaching, publishing and the US journals mean that these texts are often utilised by other readers.
For analysts and practitioners elsewhere, and with interests in different sectors, countries and so on, many of these descriptions and prescriptions fail to meet their reality.
Our task, therefore, is not necessarily to change what we write or believe, but to specify the level at which we can show it to be true.
An example is provided by those who write about the link between HRM and performance. They tend to make statements about those links that make three assumptions: Gerhart points out that there are technical problems with many of these analyses, and beyond that, these wider assumptions are inadequate: The argument is that as the international and comparative element of SHRM comes increasingly to the fore, researchers and analysts have to be ever more careful to position their work at the appropriate level of analysis if they are not to be guilty of commentaries which are confused, inapplicable or just plain wrong.
The relevant level of analysis will depend upon the question being asked. The important point is not that any level is necessarily correct or more instructive than the others, but that the level needs to be specified to make the analysis meaningful.
The actors in HRM Similarly, if in the contextual paradigm the nature of the topic is contested and widened beyond the organisation, and the levels of analysis need to be carefully specified, the question of the focus of SHRM is also raised. Is it a subject concerned with how human resources within organisations are managed or is it a subject concerned with the interaction between people at various levels?
To put it bluntly, are we analysing the cost-effective management of people to ensure that the top management's organisational objectives are met; or are we critically analysing the way human resources are managed, affected by and affect the management of organisations?
A strong stream of neo-Marxist theorising Braverman, ; Burawoy, ; Friedman ; Hyman, has focused on managerial approaches to controlling potential dissidence. While the influence of this stream of writing appears to have waned, the contextual paradigm within which it fits, and the willingness to challenge managerial objectives and actions, remains relevant.
The contextual paradigm contrasts with the universalistic paradigm in its insistence on going beyond the immediately declared corporate strategy and approach to HRM laid down by senior management to asking whether these have deleterious consequences for individuals within the organisation, for the long-term health of the organisation and for the community and country within which the organisation operates.
Alternative approaches to strategic management have been characterised as either algorithmic or experiential in emphasis Gomez-Mejia, This will help building networks that are useful for the population at large and thus actively used. This study contributes to a better understanding of how MWNs are used and who their users are: to do so it analyses both network and user-provided data of the "WiFi Lugano" network, a MWN of a medium-sized Swiss city.
