This study introduces an OLC perspective into SHRM, and develops a framework of strategic alliances of organizational strategy, HR strategy and training strategy across the organizational life cycle. To construct the framework, this study first reviews the literature of its core concepts, namely SHRM, strategic hierarchy and OLC. Then by underlying the appropriate organizational strategy in each stage for taking up the best competitive position, the corresponding HR and training strategies are inferred from the attributes and objective of its upper strategic tier. Finally, this study highlights the training target, training method and desired training outcome for each proposed training strategy across the OLC. The proposed framework suggests that linking the three tiers strategy contingently across OLC improves the efficiency, effectiveness and competence of workers in an organization.
