ABSTRACT
The article presents abstracts of research papers published in the current issue of 'Organization Dynamics.' The first paper, titled "New HR Metrics: Scoring on the Business Scorecard," by Richard W. Beatty, Mark A. Huselid and Craig Eric Schneier, considers how and what the Human Resource function contributes to the strategic success of firms by utilizing measures of a firm's "soft-side" functions. Another article, titled "A Spirit of Personal Integrity: The Role of Character in Executive Health," by Joanne H. Gavin, James Campbell Quick, Cary L. Cooper and Jonathan D. Quick, suggests that balancing concern for one's health with effortful striving is essential to sustained, long-term achievement. Conversely, the failure to attend to one's health places an executive at risk of failure, and in the extreme, of death. Another article "Why Outsiders on Boards Can't Solve the Corporate Governance Problem," by Henry L. Tosi, Wei Shen, and Richard J. Gentry, shows how chief executive officers (CEOs) can weave an intricate web of conditions that allow them to exert substantial influence over boards of directors.
