Human Resource Management (HRM)

Courses

HRM 0838. Identity & Crisis. 3 Credit Hours.

As we go through life there will be natural changes that we must deal with. For college students this involves for many being on their own for the first time, picking a major, trying to figure out a work career, dealing with a roommate and other known challenges. There will also be unplanned changes or crises that each of us will face at different times over our lives, such as the sickness/death of loved ones, broken relationships, work problems, as well as our own mortality. One goal is to face each crisis in as healthy a way as possible, without physically or emotionally hurting others or ourselves. The recent Northern Illinois and Virginia Tech University tragedies are an extreme example of how someone can lash out violently. We also attack ourselves, if not physically then mentally. Often a crisis forces conflict and then leads to self-reflection, e.g., did I contribute to this crisis through how I handled conflict? The more prepared we are to deal with a crisis and conflict , the better we can come through it, helping ourselves and perhaps affected others too. Part of this preparation can involve examining our belief systems, including religious/spiritual, but also cognitive. How can we each live in the present & accept responsibility for our lives, yet not over worry about the future or have guilt/non-forgiveness about the past? NOTE: This course fulfills the Human Behavior (GB) requirement for students under GenEd and Individual & Society (IN) for students under Core.

HRM 3903. Honors - Management, Theory & Practice: From the Locker Room to the Board Room. 3 Credit Hours.

Whether a pick-up game at the local rec. center or a nationally-televised Final Four dream match-up, the game of basketball provides an ideal context for examining group dynamics, ethics, and motivation in organizations. For example, in basketball, the number one draft pick is only as dominant as the teammates (s)he electrifies. Think Michael Jordan and the notorious Chicago Bulls of the 1990s. Likewise, in a corporation, the CEO is only as effective as the top management team (s)he hand-selects and mentors to success. Ball hogs, showboaters, and cheap foulers can disrupt a basketball team's rhythm in much the same way that crooks, arbitrageurs, and balance sheet cheats can impact the bottom line. In this course students will explore - directly and metaphorically - some of the tenets of basketball as they relate to the theory and practice of management in organizations.

The effective management of HR practices has an enormous effect on the organization's economic performance. Given the direct impact of HRM on cost, quality, and productivity, the success of any organization -- both traditional and virtual-- depends on the effectiveness of the decisions its managers make about strategic human resource issues. In this course, we will examine contemporary "best practices" in HR and what is known about how to improve the quality of strategic HR decision-making. In doing so, we will review how high performance organizations manage such HR issues as compensation, staffing, labor-management relations, work system design, performance management, training, equal opportunity employment, HR outsourcing, and change management.

HRM 5301. Human Capital and Organizational Change. 1.5 Credit Hour.

Strategic Human Capital and Organizational Change is designed to help participants better understand how organizations use human capital strategies to drive firm performance, engender change, and build an aligned organizational culture. In doing so, a general management perspective is emphasized throughout the course regarding the design of human capital strategy and how the execution of such plays an essential role in achieving sustainable competitive advantage. By analyzing firm-level case studies, this course will illustrate how contemporary practices (e.g. talent acquisition, compensation, performance management, global management related to human capital issues, HR service outsourcing, talent development, etc.) determine an organization’s culture and, in turn, how organization culture is key to determining a firm’s cost, quality, productivity, and customer service. The central focus will involve a general management perspective on assessing the linkage or fit between firm strategy and human capital practices. As a result, a key activity throughout the course will involve firm-level case assessments of the alignment or mis-alignment between the firm’s business model and its human capital strategy.

It is the single factor that makes an organization viable, successful, effective, enduring."
