"The mission of Research Methodology in Strategy and Management is "to provide a forum for critique, commentary, and discussion about key methodology issues in the strategic management field" because "strategic management relies on an array of complex methods drawn from various
allied disciplines to examine how managers attempt to lead their firms toward success." This tenth volume was commissioned following the Academy of Management Global Conference in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2013. Reflecting a diversity of Africa-born authors in the mainland and diaspora, as
well as non-Africans whose research focus on Africa, it offers a collection of high impact research that makes a major contribution in advancing management education and knowledge in Africa."
Industrial Revolution 4.0 is upon us, with disruptive technology rapidly changing our personal and professional lives. In this climate it is not clear how organization reorganization will take place and there is haziness over the strategic HRM required to attract, develop, and retain talent.
This book shines a light on the rapidly changing work landscape by bringing together international expert contributors, who address issues such as the long-term effects of artificial intelligence and block chain technologies on the firm and on human resources, and deliberate on the effects
Industrial Revolution 4.0 is likely to have on both emerging economies and developed countries. A number of fundamental questions are asked: Will HR managers perceive IT as a supporting adjunct or a core operational department? Will man and machine co-exist, or will artificial intelligence have more
ominous implications for humanity, as predicted by Stephen Hawking? In other words, is HRM 4.0 an opportunity, a transient phase, or an impending threat?
Human and Technological Resource Management is a must read for students and scholars of HRM, as well as anyone interested in the future of technology in the workplace

The mission of the Research Methodology in Strategy and Management book series is to provide a thoughtful medium to comment, critique, and build knowledge relevant to techniques that advance the strategic management field. This ninth volume in the series explores the theme of "Social
Entrepreneurship and Research Methods." This volume provides a critical examination of previous approaches used to explore phenomena of interest in the growing study of social entrepreneurship. The importance of construct management in this emerging field is explored in depth, and the
contributors to this volume provide thoughts on a number of valuable approaches to collect both qualitative and quantitative data germane to the study of social enterprise. This volume also highlights the promise of longitudinal techniques, the use of configurational approaches, and other techniques
that allow for the incorporation of rich qualitative information to aid in the study of social enterprise growth and performance.
