General course Description:
Many managers and organizations now recognize that a critical source of competitive advantage often comes not from having the most ingenious product design, the best marketing strategy, or the most state-of-the-art production technology, but rather from having an effective system for obtaining, mobilizing, and managing the organization's human assets. A number of recent developments including demographic changes in the labor force, rapid technological change, increased global competition, tight labor markets in many sectors, experiments with new organizational arrangements, and public policy attention to work force issues are making human resource management (HRM) increasingly important for senior managers in organizations and for entrepreneurs. Indeed, some commentators contend that in today's economy with such open access to information, technology, capital, and other resources adroit human resource management may be one of the few remaining sustainable sources of competitive advantage. 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 needs to be done to implement these policies and, if appropriate for a given organization, to achieve competitive advantage through people.
Course Style: A Substantive course teaches the law, theory, and policy in a particular area of law
