(Answered) HUS 520: Review, critically analyze and examine the structure of the organization and of the human resources department. Is it positioned to be a strategic partner?


This paper will be written in five parts. Students will select a specific organization, and report on the overall management and administrative function including philosophy, structure, programs, etc. (You may select your current organization, but a formal letter of permission should be acquired). Research should be gathered from available interviews (podcasts, etc), organizational publications, and/or other published material. The project is to be individually completed. Here are the guiding questions for your project. This is a policy analysis paper and not an employee analysis paper. Since no surveys or individual interviews are required, nor will be conducted with employees, the IRB process will not be necessary. However, if any human subjects are involved in the analysis of the program, then a proposal will be sent to the IRB at Saint Leo University for approval before any research is conducted using human subjects. If no actual human services organization is interested in participating in this project, the student can create a fictional organization and develop the materials for the project based upon best practices for management. Here are the guiding questions for your project.


1.         Briefly discuss (1 – 2 pages) the role of management in a human services setting.


2     Review, critically analyze and examine the structure of the organization and of the human resources department. Is it positioned to be a strategic partner? Describe the structure and comment on what you believe are its challenges and strengths. (3 – 4 pages)


3.         Examine the various personnel practices and policies of the organization. (E.g. the strategic planning, training, diversity management, recruitment, performance management, job analysis compensation, benefits, etc. as covered in class.) Are their policies and practices up-to-date, relevant to the organization, and enforced consistently and fairly? Should any policy be changed? Improved upon or be eliminated? Why? How? (3 – 4pages)


4.         It has been said that the ultimate goal of management is to increase worker productivity while maintaining a high level of employee morale and job satisfaction. Is this goal of management being achieved in your selected organization? Analyze from a variety of organizational perspectives and draw verifiable conclusions. (3 – 4 pages)


5.         If you were an outside consultant hired by this company to analyze the personnel department for efficiency and effectiveness, what recommendations, both structural, strategic and tactical would you make to the senior organizational management team?  (2 pages)



No late assignments will be accepted – Submit final paper in Dropbox 8 (located in week 8) and in Key Assignments – Management Analysis Paper box by Wednesday, February 27


This paper will be an in-depth analysis of management on a selected organization. The student will apply the Saint Leo University core value of Excellence and professional Human Services standards and ethics (CSHSE) in working with management that best informs an understanding of the analysis. This paper must be between 12- 15 pages, typed and double-spaced. (12 pages of content are required). Graphs and visuals may be included but do not count towards the content pages. Confidentiality is necessary for any information collected from the agencies. Names of the agencies should be concealed for any classroom discussions about the agency analysis and findings. Agencies wanting the results of the analysis should be granted a copy of the final paper, with a written understanding that the student is not a professional at this point, but rather is learning and practicing the theory related to management in human services settings. Correct spelling, grammar, and sentence structure is imperative.
