The effective management of people and the sustainability of human capital are major leadership responsibilities. This course provides a guide to this challenging area of leadership and aims to help you apply basic human resource management (HRM) principles and techniques in ways that are both organisationally relevant and topical.

The effective management of an organisation’s human capital and the sustainability of that human capital are major management responsibilities. This course promotes understanding of organisations’ human capital systems and critical thinking and reflection on key elements of these systems.

The course aims to explore what may be expected of both managers and HR professionals, in the joint pursuit of improved organisational and individual outcomes. The aim is for you to develop evidence-­based views of people performance topics and use them as a platform for creative leadership-­focused interventions to fuel individual and organisational performance and culture. Reflective practice to build personal HRM performance is encouraged throughout the course.

1. Gain an understanding of the line manager’s role in the HRM systems needed to maintain the organisation’s human capital.
