Taking care of innovation: The HRM innovation process in healthcare organizations – Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam – September 2014

iSBn: 978-90-5335-883-2

“In this dissertation, research on the innovation process of Human Resource Management (HRM) innovations in Dutch healthcare organizations is reported. Healthcare organizations are being confronted with several challenges that increase the need for innovations in the way work processes are being designed and employees are being managed (Human Resource Management). Therefore, it is important to enhance our understanding of such innovation processes in healthcare. Relatively many studies focus on product innovations in private sector organizations, but research on managerial innovations in healthcare organizations is underdeveloped. In order to understand how characteristics of the healthcare sector affect the HRM innovation process, a new approach is developed that allows researchers to take the context of organizations under study as a starting point to study organizational processes. This approach is called the contextualized process methodology. Using this approach, the focus of this dissertation is on several context specific elements in the HRM innovation process: the role and position of HR professionals, coopetition (simultaneous cooperation and collaboration), multiple institutional logics and institutional pressures. Therefore, this study contributes to the scientific knowledge base in this research area and provides a basis for practical recommendations.”
