1. Critically examine the role of strategic HR management with respect to organizational performance, citing empirical evidence and specific organizations’ success stories. You should explicitly define ‘strategic human resource management’ and distinguish between different types of HR strategies and how they can and should align with competitive business strategies.
2. Present a detailed, comprehensive plan of how you will specifically address each core HR function (e.g. work design, job analysis, recruitment, selection, retention, separation, performance management, training, development, compensation, legal requirements, and employee relations) to create a high performance work system (HPWS).
3. Present your evaluation of the challenges and opportunities involved with respect to diversity, e-HRM and managing human resources internationally, and explain how you plan to help the firm to practically prepare for these challenges and opportunities.
4. Demonstrate (within the report) a comprehensive understanding and appreciation of the importance of relevant legal issues related to HR management and organizational performance.
The report in essence should reflect your personal vision as to what strategic HRM issues are important and need to be identified and properly addressed.
