Morning All,

For the benefit of me and my fellow study crew on the 2013 Spring Manchester Group, I’ve put my notes below on how I might tackle the first task on the assessment for Workshop 6: Managing the HRD function.  If this is any use to anyone else on the community that’s great too.

Managing and Co-Ordinating the HRD Function - Assessment Task 1 Helping Hand 

The first part of task brief one says:

Draw up a short mission statement for the HR function in an organisation you are familiar with consisting of five clear and distinct statements.  Each should reflect your view of current and future priorities. 

For this part of the task mission statements can relate to departmental objectives for HRD.  So perhaps choose five objectives of HRD e.g. creating customer experience, robust performance management system, retention etc.  This links to objective 1.1 which says Identify major organisational objectives that the HRD function is responsible for delivering.

 

The second part goes on to say “Go on to justify your choice, making reference to major developments in the organisation's business environment.”

This second part seems to require us to Explain how these objectives are evolving in the contemporary environment” according to objective 1.2.  To me this sounds like a good place to talk about how the structure of HRD has/hasn’t changed in the business to support these objectives. 

Perhaps reference to Ulrich’s model may be of use here as well reflecting on the 70:20:10 approach to future learning.

 

Hope this helps.  If anyone has any useful links in relation to the above, I'd appreciate them posted below.

Any advice on the remainder of the assessment gratefully received!
