Modular value: 20 credits
Lecturer: Adrian Cambell
The aim of this module is to develop a critical understanding of the theories, concepts and approaches relating to Human Resources Management and Development in an international context.
The module explores strategies and practices adopted in the new performance oriented climate - and the expectations and outcomes invoked by this new climate. We discuss the influence of social and cultural factors on selection and implementation of strategies in public and private sectors and in developed and less developed contexts.
By the end of this module, students should be able to:
Describe contemporary approaches to managing performance
Discuss the differences between Strategic HRM and HRD
Explain how approaches to managing staff vary according to context
Carry out a training needs analysis
Design and evaluate a training and development programme
Design an appropriate HR strategy for your own organisation
Teaching and learning approach
The module will be delivered using a range of teaching and learning methods in a highly participatory environment, including interactive lectures, group discussions, student presentations, case studies, videos and invited speakers.
