Strategic Human Resource Management (SHRM) is a new concept followed especially in private sector; it is an approach to managing human resource that supports long-term business goals, it tries to enhance the management of HR to a strategic level through human capital. The purpose of this paper is to shed light on the main concepts used in the strategic human resource management, including the management and planning of human resource and focusing on the strategy formulation steps to arrive to a general framework of the SHRM. The present study was performed after analysing the SHRM formulation steps and proposing the process of implementation in the public and private sectors, the proposed framework suggests the use of scientific tools such as Markov modelling for the HR supply forecasting and the fuzzy method to refine the choice of a suitable strategy among others. The main finding of the paper is the proposition of a framework of SHRM that relies on quantitative and qualitative data, which enable us to rely on well analysed information to build a strategy. The reason behind this is to emphasize and encourage the use of scientific models in order to approach the reality and to refine the future projections.
