IPSY 6720 - Strategic Thinking for Effective Human Resource Management


(4 cr.) One of the main responsibilities of human resource managers and organizational leaders is to employ human resources (HR) to align with an organization’s needs and goals, moving the organization toward competitive advantage and sustainable success. Students in this course are introduced to advanced research topics in the strategic management of HR within a systems thinking and metrics-based performance measurement context. Students engage in a variety of group activities, discussions, and writing assignments on the analysis of resource-based theories of organizational performance; strategic management; and HR strategy, planning, and management (including succession planning). Students also discuss the role of metrics, knowledge management, and human resource information systems in supporting HR and organizational strategies in global markets. Through extensive reading and literature review, students explore global and ethical dimensions of course topics and identify potential HR research topics for their dissertation.
