MNGT 361- Final Project
The instructor will place class members in groups of 3 – 5. Each group will be asked to develop a human resource management plan for a hypothetical organization in the industry of the group’s choosing. This project will serve as the main focal point for demonstrating the procedural knowledge gained in the class. The viability of the business idea or the specifics of the business will not be graded. Students simply need to come up with a realistic business concept for which to build a HR plan.
The project should contain basic information about the strategy of the organization, details pertaining to how the people-management practices of the firm fit that strategy, as well as the horizontal linkages between these practices. In addition, each group will be asked to create a comprehensive human resource plan for three positions (one at the operational level, one at the middle-management level, and one at the executive level). This plan should include a detailed job analysis, recruitment and selection plan, training and development plan, compensation approach, and performance evaluation plan including example items where appropriate.
The job analysis should include both a job description and a job specification, including information about the essential tasks for the job. The selection plan should include a multi-step approach for each position (i.e., a subset of ability tests, personality tests interviews, assessment centers, references, etc.). The training plan should include a description of the type of training that is likely needed both to socialize each individual to the organization (New Employee Orientation) and also provide job specific information. Each position will also need to be evaluated on a regular basis. Students will put together both an approach to evaluating each position (i.e., how often, by whom, what kind of assessment) as well as provide a meaningful assessment tool using a behavior or results-based approach. Finally, a compensation plan should be fit to each position including an assessment of the pay level, pay structure, and pay mix for each of the 3 positions.
Papers should be between 10 – 12 pages in length, including additional appendices if necessary. Students should leverage O*NET to derive the core competencies needed for each position and should attempt to integrate additional resources from personal interviews, academic journal articles, and the popular press, to support their plans. All references should be properly cited using the standards of the American Psychological Association (APA). It is expected that the papers will be well written and free of grammatical errors.
Each group will post 150 – 300 word summary of your project on the discussion page. The summary should include a brief description of your company, and briefly introduce the three positions you have selected. In addition, the summary should touch on at least two of the following points: your selection plan, training plan, performance evaluation plan, or compensation plan.
