In this highly readable book, Peter Herriot looks at the individual and
strategic organizational dimensions of career management. In particular, he argues that organizations will increasingly need to manage a complex individual-organizational `balancing act' as an essential ingredient of their human resource strategies.
Herriot shows how key current and future trends will lead organizations to make increasing demands on employees. Individual employees will also come to expect more from their organizations. He discusses the balances that need to be struck between individual and organizational expectations and the human resource management implications of achieving this, both in organizational cultures and values, and in the various career management systems that will need to be introduced.
