We’ve all heard the quote attributed to management consultant Peter Drucker, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” Discuss this quote and how it applies or doesn’t apply to HRM. Are there other factors (for example, emotion, gut feel, and/or instinct) that should also be considered when deciding on the success or failure of HR activities?
Additional Key Elements of the Assignment:
Your Initial Post should occur in a timely manner (by the third day of the module for full timeliness points). Include the original questions along with your initial, informative post. Support your post with information from at least one reference and provide complete source information (so that your peers can find the article if they wish). Bring in your own personal experiences, as applicable.
Your Subsequent Posts: Read through responses by peers and post responses to at least two classmates’ posts. Bring in ideas/comments and/or research not mentioned yet.
Remember—To receive full credit in this forum, you need to post a minimum of three quality posts (your own initial post, and responses to two classmates). Only one outside source is needed (in the initial post). But in any post, if you borrow ideas/information from other authors, give them credit for their work.
