This subject draws from the students understanding of Human Resource Management and applies these concepts to a real organizational context. Students will be expected to undertake analysis of a real-life organization, and to propose a suitable research project. The students are expected to work collaboratively with industry partners to deliver innovative and context-appropriate solutions. The course takes an evidence-based approach, utilizing research skills and collected data to critically analyze an aspect or aspects of Human Resources within a specific context, and evaluate the nature of the challenge. Students will then devise an intervention designed to deal with the challenge and provide an analysis of the results. This subject is framed as a consultancy project that takes into consideration the complexity of applying research and knowledge in real-life practice.
