Abstract:As a response to the dynamic healthcare environment, organizations in the healthcare sector have introduced self-managing teams. However the largest and most profound implication of this introduction seems to be related to the general role of HRM. Moving from a centralized functional, structure to a more decentralized organic structure requires a change in the Human Resource Management department role. This change raised unclarities about the division of HRM practise responsibilities between the HRM department and SMT(s). Therefore, this case study, consisting of 13 semi-structured interviews and 4 transcripts of records with (mostly) SMT members, provides a detailed overview of those divisions of responsibilities for HRM planning, Recruitment & Selection, Training & Development, Performance Appraisal and Job design. Based on the literature review it is found that no complete HRM practice responsibility could be appointed to the Coach Manager or HR department, and a table is created in which each HRM practice is reviewed on seven different activities. In this research, those via the table, identified but forgotten responsibilities were performance appraisals and proper developed training programs. Combining the claimed SMTs need for these practices, with the current organizational wide formation shortage, this forms a threat. To deal with this threat a 360 degree feedback system and strategical linked training program is recommended. The results and theoretical framework are presented such that they can be used as an aid to clarify the division responsibilities of HRM practices within different organizations.
