HRM - what is next? Transforming towards higher ordered reflection

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


New managerialism is challenged as higher ordered reflection is needed to cope with com-plexity and uncertainty. A literature gap exists in how HRM and NPM co-evolves from new managerialism towards new governance, and how to cope with distrust in the highly polycentric and multilayered transition process.
This analysis reveals four perspectives building on to each other needed for HRM to evolve higher ordered reflection. Also it reveals, to what extend a new agenda for public performance management is emerging in the Danish municipal sector allowing for higher order reflective practices and aspects of what is needed in addressing distrust as part of this change process.
The analysis combines three sub-analyzes synthesized in this paper:
• a meta-analysis of four contributions on HRM future-concepts
• a comparison of the evolvement of performance management mo¬dels of four Danish muni-ci¬pal sectors
• an investigation of a Danish Free Municipality trial in a job centre
