2010 Course Handbook
HRM327: Applied Human Resources Management
This unit is aimed at teaching students to apply knowledge and skills gained during the HRM degree to real organisations. The unit can be thought of as a capstone covering three major areas: (1) A theoretical capstone—reviewing and refining perspectives on strategic HRM; (2) A practical capstone—teaching applied consulting skills and working to hone these skills on a project reviewing real issues in a real organisation; and (3) A reflective, critical practice capstone—providing the intellectual tools for students to evaluate various approaches to problem solving in key areas of the HRM field, both theoretical and practical, and giving students the opportunity to determine their own perspectives. The major activity/assessment exercise during the unit is a group based consulting project/review of a real HR issue in an organisation which some students will have access to via their work.
