AMP 434 Week 2 Assignment, Strategic HRM Plan Benchmark Assessment
Write a high-level strategic human resource management plan (3-4 pages). The purpose of this assignment is to simulate the thought process managers use to connect unit goals with organizational strategy. The students are not expected to produce a detailed strategic plan (which in actual organizations can exceed 100 pages). Rather, the expectation is that students demonstrate consideration of the multiple complexities involved in strategic planning.
The assignment is centered on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) model of analysis, and the specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART) model of goal setting.
Access the GCU Library, relevant course materials, Internet resources, and the HRM Webliography to research SWOT analysis, SMART goals, and models of strategic proposals.
Access your Scenario Generator Report, which includes a description of the organization, points to reflect on, a SWOT analysis, and directions for a SMART goals report. Use this information to write the Strategic HRM Proposal.
The Strategic HRM Proposal should be in the form of a professional report. There is no single, correct manner of presentation. Creative thinking is expected. The formatting is secondary to the content and application of knowledge. However, the proposal should be …..in a readily comprehensible manner that conveys a thorough understanding of course objectives. Graphics, bulleted lists, tables, and charts are acceptable. Include the following:
Introduction and conclusion that make relevant connections to course objectives. Summary of the organizational description included in your Scenario Generator Report.. Reflection and application of each point included in your Scenario Generator Report (two to three fully developed sentences per item).
