The soft-hard dichotomy in HRM exists primarily within normative, or prescriptive, models of human resource management, rather than in what
(1995) terms the descriptive-functional or critical-evaluative traditions. The
earliest examples where this terminology is used are in the work of (1987)
and (1987; 1992). (1987), in seeking to define HRM, identifies two
dimensions, soft-hard and loose-tight. Similarly, (1992) plots existing interpretations of HRM along the two dimensions of soft-hard and weak-strong. Although these two commentators draw heavily on the work of American HRM academics in drawing a distinction between the two forms--the Harvard model for the soft version and the Michigan model for the hard version (1984)--the terms 'soft' and 'hard' have not been used in the American literature, and the debates surrounding them have taken place exclusively in a British context ( 1990). (1987) and (1992) in their definitions of soft and hard models of HRM view the key distinction as being whether the emphasis is placed on the human or the resource. Soft HRM is associated with the human relations movement, the utilization of individual talents, Theory Y perspective on individuals (developmental humanism). This has been equated with the concept of a 'high commitment work system' (1985), 'which is aimed at eliciting a commitment so that behavior is primarily self-regulated rather than controlled by sanctions and pressures external to the individual and relations within the organization are based on high levels of trust' ( 1996. Soft HRM is also associated with the goals of flexibility and adaptability (which themselves are problematic concepts, as we shall see in more detail later), and implies that communication plays a central role in management (1993).

Hard HRM, on the other hand, stresses 'the quantitative, calculative and
business-strategic aspects of managing the "headcount resource" in as
"rational" a way as for any other factor of production', as associated with a
utilitarian-instrumentalist approach ( 1992 )strategic objectives of the organization (external fit), and are coherent among themselves (internal fit)
