Abstract. Today, human resources and management knowledge are considered as important and competitive organizational assets. Human resource managers who are aware of the importance of human resources will be able to create competitive advantages for organization's future. On the other hand, literature world includes a vast scope of sensory experiences based on objective facts which should not be ignored. Firdausi's Shahname has outlined various events given its infinite time and place. Regarding this variety of events, different individuals play roles with different human actions and reactions; therefore, Shahname is an appropriate field for researchers who are interested in interdisciplinary research such as literature and management, particularly human resources. From this perspective, the researcher aimed to match the "comprehensive pattern of management of influencing factors on human productivity" by Dr. Seyed Mahdi Alvani and Parviz Ahmadi with Shahname management practices in the present study. Although it may be a little effort, it is hoped to take a small step for the recognition of indigenous management. It is hoped that such studies can provide practical samples for management students through emphasis on unique richness of Persian culture and literature.
