Abstract:

“I am requesting funds to conduct research with colleagues in Taiwan for three months. The research topic is the influence of human resource management (HR) strategy on firm outcomes, in the context of buyer-supplier relationships in the manufacturing industry. I am proposing collaboration on this research with Dr. Meiyu Fang, Professor of Management at National Central University in Zhongli and Dr. Ying-Jung Yeh, Associate Professor and director of the global MBA program at National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST) in Taipei, both of whom are accomplished management scholars. Using theories of intra- and inter-firm strategic human resource management, cross-cultural management models, and multiple research methods, our team will extend to the Taiwan context research a model that compares the use of three HR strategies: internally-oriented high performance work systems (HPWS), externally-oriented HPWS, and collaborative HR practices. My time in Taiwan will be spent working with my Taiwanese colleagues to learn about manufacturing and management culture in Taiwan, and to design and conduct qualitative interviews of HR managers, procurement professionals, and plant managers. The ultimate goal of this research project is an empirical, mixed method, three-country (France, Taiwan, the United States) examination of a model of supply chain / HR management relationships.”
