This study explores the adoption of strategic human resource management (HRM) by examining the extent of linkages between HRM and business planning using the Golden and Ramnujam's (1985) strategic integration framework. The sample is drawn from monopolized statutory public sector organizations (PSOs) which have undergone corporatization in Queensland, Australia. The findings provide support for arguing that commercialization provides the impetus for the HRM function to achieve an improved level of strategic integration with the business planning process. Evidence also suggests that after corporatization, HRM functions within these corporatized PSOs have achieved a strategic status within the business planning process.
