The video contains two case studies which help students to understand the role of Human Resources strategy and the management of change. The two organisations presented both faced severe financial... pressures in the late1980s and both embarked upon a programme of change and both radically reworked their approaches to human resource management. The first programme features the Aberdeen Royal Hospitals Trust and examines to what extent they attempted to change the culture of the organisation as they prepared to face current market pressures. The second programme looks at the impact of structural changes at IBC, a car assembly plant owned by USA's General Motors and Isuzu of Japan. The student is asked to think about to what extent the survival driven HR strategy plan was successful at changing attitudes at IBC.
