Task: Each group should identify a problem situation (HR
problem) in an organisation they have access to- preferably an
organisation where at least one group member works or has worked
recently. The focus has to be on an unresolved problem (only one
problem). Groups of around four will be formed during class in
This task is designed to develop your ability to:
â€¢Â Â Â contribute fruitfully to a group task;
â€¢Â Â Â assess a HRM issue or problem as objectively as possible;
â€¢Â Â Â appreciate the potential of theory in managerial decision making and problem solving;
â€¢Â Â Â apply theory to â€˜real lifeâ€™;
â€¢Â Â Â take responsibility for resolving the problem or issue by designing a practical course of action (rather than merely making recommendations).
Part 1 of this assessment is a written group report of 1800-2000 words (25%). This report is to address the following areas:
â€¢Â Â Â Provide a brief introduction to the organisation (it is acceptable to withhold the name of the organisation).
â€¢Â Â Â Describe the problem, as much as possible in terms of the observable or measurable symptoms it manifests, for example: employee unrest, frequent industrial action, high absenteeism, workplace bullying/harassment, low morale, loss of profit, sabotage etc.
â€¢Â Â Â The issue/problem should then be considered and analysed in terms of concepts/models/theories drawn from any two topics studied as part of this subject. To give some examples, your group may choose to adopt different negotiation tactics, change the existing recruitment and selection method, or re-design jobs, or arrange special training program and so on. Try to choose the topic that seems to offer the most useful insights into the problem. Topics must be taken from the BU5912HRM course schedule.
â€¢Â Â Â Design a change program or set of activities and procedures utilising some aspect or aspects of your analysis (actual action plan). The change program should be intended to solve or improve the situation. Please note you are not merely being asked for a list of recommendations.
