Your Assignment One (HW#1) is to write a critical review on the following question:
“What can Saudi Arabia learn from other advanced or developing economies on improving her human resource planning (or SWP) cycles and models on a macro or a micro level? You should use and fully ‘activate’ the resource-based view or the human capital view of the firm (outlined in chapter 2 of course textbook), in your review, as well as draw on the Japan case-study [or BCG’s KSA “” case study] recently extensively discussed in the class“
Your final text will be approximately 475-550 words on that specific issue (and the word count excludes with-in text and end of text referencing).
Marking criteria includes:
– Academic format [brief introduction and conclusion, clear and concise paragraphs, referencing and appendix, if needed] [20%]
– Identifying and focusing on a specific and relevant issue [20%]
– Applying HRP (resource-based or human capital view) ideas and theory, and suggesting logical and evidence-based supported conclusion [60%]
