MBA 6407 - Human Resource Management (2)

(Elective for Leadership concentration.) The critical source of competitive advantage often comes not from having the best product design, marketing strategy or production technology, but rather from having an effective system for obtaining, mobilizing, and managing people. Although many managers and organizations recognize the importance of managing the work force effectively, frequently firms fail to implement effective human resource management analysis and practices. This course has two central themes: (1) How to think systematically and strategically about aspects of managing the organization's human assets, and (2) What really needs to be done to implement these policies and to achieve competitive advantage through people.
