Week 4 – assignment: evaluate a case in public personnel management

  

Instructions

This week, you have the task of analyzing a case study entitled, Louisiana and Vision 2020. In your evaluation, avoid summarizing the case. Instead, analyze the case critically and assess how it pertains to this week’s readings. Refer to the Guide to a Successful Case Study Analysis (see slides above) for additional guidance. Remember, excellent analyses are a combination of critical and analytical thoughts connected to greater themes presented in the readings – and this is not an easy task.

Be sure to include the following personal reflections about the readings elements in your assignment:

Provide a brief description of the questions/challenges you have regarding this week’s course readings.

Explain why the case is noteworthy.

Explain how it pertains to the assigned readings (i.e., complements, contradicts, extends the readings).

Identify the implications for you as the newly hired Director of Personnel Administration for Public Organization X.

Explain how these points or issues integrate with the material covered in the class thus far and explain their relevance to you.

As you complete your analysis, keep the following questions in mind:

How might you coordinate such efforts across agencies, industries, and sectors? What state agencies might be tasked with implementing the workforce-training benchmarks?

What roles might secondary and postsecondary education have in advancing toward the workforce-training benchmarks? How might community and technical colleges contribute to achieving these benchmarks?

What benefits might you champion as ensuing from the achievement of workforce-training goals for the state? What, if any, other benchmarks might be affected by achieving a more educated and better-trained workforce in the state?

Do not include the following in your analysis:

A summary of the readings

A detailed description of the case

Any editorials

Length: 5-7 pages, not including title and reference pages

References: Include a minimum of 5 scholarly resources.

Week 5 – Assignment: Recommend an Employee-Friendly Policy

Instructions

This week, you learned all about employee-friendly policies. Now, it is time to practice your public speaking skills in delivering the message that Organization X is implementing a new employee friendly policy/program.

First, select one of the programs discussed in the readings and conduct an online search for additional information on the subject. Then, reflect on your findings and how the implementation of the program you chose might relate to a more stable work/life balance or just a healthier work environment in general. Then, citing a combination of the readings and your outside research, give a speech to employees of Organization X outlining the new program/policy and how it will impact them moving forward.

Length: 4-6 pages, not including title and reference pages

For grading purposes, you will submit a transcript of the speech you would present, along with any visual aids (chart, graphs) that you would use to enhance the presentation. Also, you may present a recording of your speech using CaptureSpace so that your professor can give you ungraded feedback on your lecture style. This audio submission is optional.

If you choose to record your lecture, upload it to your professor using CaptureSpace. An average speech tends to be 100 to 150 words per minute.

References: Support your speech with at least five references, three of which must be scholarly and published within the last five (5) years. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate professional or scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.

Your speech should be scholarly, yet engaging. In making your speech engaging, you may depart from usual writing form an organization and choose to use anecdotes, humor, or other speaking tools; be sure, however, to cite your sources appropriately in the print version of the speech that you submit.

Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards where appropriate. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.
