    HR competency models have been vital to attempts to improve the selection and development of ‘HR business partners’ and establish a new mechanism for linking HR strategy with business performance. But how effective are they? This article proposes a research model of the links between selection and development as antecedents of the HR-business strategy linkage, with HR business partner performance as its outcome. The research model indicates that the creation of an effective HR strategy-business strategy linkage mediates the association of selection and development on business partner performance. The findings highlight the critical importance of the HR strategy-business strategy linkage, and raise important questions about the ability of HR business partners to develop this capability in the future.
