Human resource management (HRM) demands effective coordination and control over a wide range of activities by management committed to the pursuit of sound human and industrial relations policies. The paper includes a brief comment on the contribution of behavioural and social systems studies, and the practical application of HRM is discussed in broad outline. Finally, a plea is made to the DP manager that whilst carrying the full burden of technological development, he/she should not neglect those other aspects of the management task that contribute to the overall performance of a DP unit. © 1983.
