Managers should be able to proactively identify key challenges around staffing, performance management, and compensation in order to construct strategies and plans for addressing these challenges. This starts with what I call analyzing your “HR landscape.” In fact, in the capstone project for the HRM specialization, you will be asked to undertake this kind of assessment as a foundation for developing specific practices for effectively managing people. So let’s gain some practice doing some of this in this assignment.
For this assessment, you will need to focus on a specific organization. This can be the organization you work for, or it can be an organization for which you can find information through media reports, online searches, or personal contacts. Depending on the level of your information, you can focus on the organization as a whole or on a specific part of the organization (including your work group if you want). Whatever you are focusing on will be called the “unit” for the remainder of this project.
Your submission will contain eight things (this might sound like a lot, but the project is broken down into very focused steps):
After you submit your project, you will asked to review at least two submissions by other students. This is a valuable learning activity because you will gain practice thinking about the HR Landscape by evaluating others’ assessments. Watch for strengths and weaknesses in these other assessments, and use that to think about how your own analyses can be strengthened. Critically and constructively evaluating others’ work is also an important managerial skill, so think of this as another opportunity to get better at this. For all of these reasons and to help out your fellow learners, too, you are strongly encouraged to review more than two projects.
This is a peer-reviewed project. You can read the instructions for this project on this page. Click on the My submission tab to to start working on your assignment. Here are the basics of every peer review project:
