Choose one of the following two assignments to complete this week. Do not do both assignments. Identify your assignment choice in the title of your submission. When you are ready to submit, click the Module 5 Critical Thinking header on the Assignments page to upload the document.
Assignment Choice #1: Customer-Driven HR Costs and Benefits: Assessing the Business Case for Training
Read “You Manage It! 2” in Managing Human Resources (2016, p. 258). After reading the case, complete the following items:
- Write a summary of the case,
- Answer the critical thinking questions, and
- Elaborate on two key learnings from the case related to training and development and its integration with the organization. Be sure to clearly state the two key learnings and defend them in well-organized, scholarly responses.
A key learning is defined as significant knowledge gained from reading the case. You may choose to explain your key learnings by offering a real-world application, personal insight, your thoughts and opinions about what was stated, how it is handled at your company, etc.
Please arrange your summary, questions, and key learnings in a well-organized, scholarly response of 2-3 pages. Include a title page and references page which are not included in the page count. Support your observations and opinions with citations from 2-3 credible sources documented according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.
Assignment Choice #2: Training and Development in the Organization
Based on what you learned through the assigned readings and course content, you will create a model (in a PowerPoint slide) that visually depicts training and development in terms of how training and development should be integrated within an organization. A “model” is an illustration of your theory of training and development—based on your thoughts, experiences, perspective, and opinion.
For an example of a training and development model, check out the Learning Transfer model created by Ford and Weissbein, which is part of your assigned reading for this module.
Please arrange your model in a PowerPoint slide or slides. Refer to the Module 1 Critical Thinking assignment for best practices in PowerPoint design. Provide speaker notes for this slide or slides. Explain the model in more depth in the speaker notes. Support your design with citations from 2-3 credible sources documented according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.
