This study builds on previous theory and research on strategy, human resource management and performance to propose a conceptual framework that suggests employee ‘Line of Sight’ to the strategic objectives has significant mediating effects on this relationship. We focus beyond the practice-strategy alignment to concentrate more specifically on the human resources. This is consistent with current debates to put the human back into strategic human resource management and to explore the circumstances and the process whereby HRM leads to enhanced organisational performance (the so called ‘black-box).
