This module incorporates CIPD modules 5UIN, 5IVP and 5ODT.
Using Information in HR (5UIN)
Students will develop the skills of research and enquiry in order to enable identification of appropriate data sources to support an investigation into an area of HR practice and to synthesise and apply this data, to evaluate the role of HR in business and strategy formulation and implementation, and to prepare and present a business case for improvement.
Improving Organisational Performance (5IVP)
Students explore how organisations can drive sustained organisation performance by creating a high-performance work organisation (HPWO) involving line managers in the performance management process. Areas may include the different conceptual frameworks of high-performance working (HPW), its impact on organisational performance, competitive advantage, employee engagement and employee well-being, the business case for, and the barriers to, HPW as well as the role of people management in improving organisational performance. Furthermore, the contribution of the performance management process is examined and shows how the involvement and commitment of line managers, can support the building of a high-performance culture.
Organisation Development (5ODT)
Students explore how organisation development focuses on making interventions and driving improvements to organisational success by facilitating the ways in which employees – individuals, groups and teams are motivated to perform and are rewarded for performance; are involved in the business decision making processes; interact with, and relate to each other; acquire and develop knowledge, experience and skills in the context of rapidly changing organisational environments.
