(A) We can’t be sure whether this approach will be effective in Singapore, given that it is based on a theory that is North America-centric
(B) The best practice approach to HRM is not based on theory Y
(C) It won’t be effective for the Head of Gym Equipment due to the relative strategic centrality and uniqueness of this role
(D) It won’t be effective for the personal trainers due to the relative strategic centrality and uniqueness of this role
A best practice approach to HRM based on theory Y is not necessarily best in this case because this approach was successful in North America and it doesn’t mean that it will be successful in Singapore. HRM approaches change with culture and geography which means an approach that works in one country may not work in another. Therefore, we can’t be sure if this approach will work in Singapore.
