摘 要：Drawing on empirical evidence of recent developments in the global context, this presentation explores the role of the state and multinational firms as two powerful institutional actors in shaping the adoption of digital technology at macro and micro levels, with implications for human resource development (HRD) and decent work across different sectors and workforce groups. At the macro level, it examines the role of the state as a regulator, promotor and user of digitally-enabled innovation in its governance. It illustrates how the state and multinational firms can join force in shaping urban management, and in doing so, triggers public management transformationwith new skill needs and innovative thinking in public management. The presentation shows that the alliance of power between political and business elites, empowered by technology, determines what businesses the municipality may attract and become competitive in–such decisions are often influenced by their cognitive limitations and development agenda. As such, each city/region will have its own industrial clusters, investment environment, economic characteristics and labour market behavior, which consequently shape human resource management (HRM) practices, including the capacity to attract and retain talent from other regions. At the micro level, the presentation also critically assesses some of the radical strategies large firms adopt in harnessing creative talent through an open innovation system. These strategies call into question the relevance of existing strategic HRM theories and practices on the one hand, but also sow seeds of risks in terms of the firms sustainable resources on the other. The intention of the presentation is to highlight new developments in some parts of the world and stimulate research efforts to capture these new phenomena and to conceptualise HRD in more innovative angles.
