Abstract:This study draws on HRM implementation and HRM frames. The proposition is made that implementation of HR practices can be deemed successful when the intended HR practice is aligned with the realized HR practice. The main objective of this study was to investigate the difference between intended and realized HR practices in an organization and then with the help of HRM frames explore if incongruence in HRM frames can explain this difference. This research is situated in the Dutch healthcare sector with all its accompanying challenges for the organization as a whole but also challenges for the HRM function specifically. The research is done in a healthcare organization operating in the Netherlands and specifically in the division of residential care. The results of the study suggest that there is a difference between the intended and realized HR practice when it comes to the autonomy of the self-managed teams. The role of incongruent HRM frames came forward as a possible explanation for the difference in the intended and realized HR practice of autonomous teams.
