The paper has raised the issue of why organizations introduce human resource management ideas (HRMI). In particular, it attempts to explain why managers sometimes modify HRMI. It is argued in the paper that attitudes and behavior of managers towards novel ideas cannot be divorced from organizational strategy as well as their cultural orientations. Particularly, organizational contingencies such as resource availability, politics and industry also impact on the adoption and modification of HRMI.
