This course is an advanced study of strategic human resource management (SHRM). The course is designed to not only provide students with knowledge but to relate knowledge to practice specifically relating to the diagnosis and development of contemporary HRM strategy. HRM strategy influences the emergence of workplace culture aligned to the corporate plan. Emphasis is also directed to exploring a range of strategies to build the dynamic capability and the adaptive capacity of the workforce. Accordingly, this course adopts a resource-based view of strategy as a basis to formulate complementary HRM policies, programs and practices such as HR planning, job design, talent management, and managing diversity, inclusion and well-being. The application of HRM analytics to identify emerging workforce trends and to measure the effectiveness of strategy is also examined. As the course navigates its way through various HR theoretical frameworks students are encouraged to view SHRM in an international context. The course is designed to develop problem solving and critical reflection skills to help students solve complex organisational problems across different contexts.
