Hi there, here's a small case study and 5 questions. I already have them answered, I just want you to check them.
If they are incorrect then what is the correct answer. Thank you.
Karen Liu recently accepted the position of Department Chair of the Department of Business at her university. She quickly realized that one of the very important jobs related to her role, was the need to make good human resource decisions as this affected the Department's ability to offer, schedule, and meet student needs for courses in all three academic terms per year. The mission statement of the university specifies a clear commitment to meeting the needs of all stakeholders, and in particular, being student centered is a priority. Due to the distinct rise in the number of students wishing to pursue a degree in business in recent years, this had placed an increasing stress on resources to meet student demand for courses and course sections. In particular, student feedback had indicated that course waitlists were long, that many students were unable to enter into their preferred courses, and that students wished that more courses were offered in three hour blocks or in the evening to allow them easier work scheduling. As she looked at course offerings and schedules from last year, and considered her current teaching faculty, she wondered how she would tackle the huge job of course planning for the next academic year.
Up to this point, prior to Karen Liu taking the Chair position, it appears that the Department of Business is at what level of Human resource planning activities?
Question 1 options:
Level 3 (X)
When considering the questions: how many faculty members Karen needs, when Karen needs them (i.e. which term are the faculty resources required), and for which courses does Karen need them, relates to which step of the Human Resource Planning Process?
Establish Program Evaluation
Develop HR objectives
Assess internal and external supply of resources
Forecast demand for resources
Design and implement HRM programs (X)
To deal with her increasing faculty member needs, a viable option for Karen is to
phased retirement offers
transfer out faculty
hire contract workers
offer job sharing (X)
Karen found that the job of identifying appropriate faculty members to be assigned to particular courses a huge task. It became evident that it would have been helpful to have a HRIS in place in the Department. As always, keeping any information system up to date can be time consuming. For this purpose, she would have appreciated a(n) ____________ intranet function which would allow faculty members to access and view their own records and make changes and update where applicable.
manager self-service (X)
internal computer network (X) - both would be great ideas!
Karen is considering using a fairly simple and quick method of estimating future faculty needs. She is thinking of looking at past course needs trends and relating that to how many faculty members are required. She would be using
nominal group technique
budget and planning analysis
the Delphi technique
