HRM 300 Week 4 DQ 1

The process of building a learning organization unleashes individual creativity, and fosters collective learning, which is crucial for encouraging, and developing innovation and rapid responsiveness to global competition. A learning organization is continually getting smarter, because learning is planned, systematic and in alignment with the organization's strategic goals. In order to get smarter, the organization needs to capture its organizational knowledge and continue to learn and build from it.  The idea that human resources can become a source of competitive advantage for the organization is not new. Organizational resources lead to a sustained competitive advantage when they are valuable, rare, inimitable and have no substitute. A strategic human resource management system must allow the adaptation of human resource management practices and the knowledge and behavior of the employees as regards the immediate needs of the organization, which are shown in its organizational strategy. human resource management system must promote the development of a dynamic organizational capability that generates agile responses to the needs of current organizational strategy. Human resource management must explore how the integration and complementarities of resources, practices and organizational capacities facilitate the achievement of the competitive advantage for the organization.
