Individual Course Project Overview

A major graded component of this graduate level Strategic Staffing course is the Individual Course Project. This course project will afford you the opportunity to role-play being a key strategic employee at the vice-president / executive level of an ongoing company. In this role, you have been tasked by your executive leader to design a Strategic Workforce staffing Plan (known by the abbreviation “SWP”) for a new strategic business unit. This strategic business unit will be an additional operating division within the existing going concern. This Individual Course Project begins in Week One and continues each week with required deliverables concluding in Week’s Seven and Eight, with the Final Course Project Paper and concomitant narrated PowerPoint presentation, respectively.


Each week, as noted herein below, a different section of the Individual Course Project will be researched, completed and submitted. You will be working on your own to research the information necessary related to a specific portion of the overall plan. Your instructor will always be available to serve as your guide-on-the-side.


The areas to be included in the Individual Course Project Final Paper are: Background, Workforce Demand, Total Costs of Workforce, Workforce Analysis, Change Management, Results and Conclusion / Recommendations. The individual weekly papers, if properly researched and completed should provide sufficient information to include in the above list of sections for the final paper.


You are to be cautioned to not think of the marketing and funding of the organization, but only the building of the staff with a Strategic Workplace Planning (SWP) strategy.


The organization selection must be a currently ongoing and reasonably successful business operating within North America / The United States of America. Your main organization may have worldwide / overseas operations. But, your strategic business unit start-up will be located within North American / The United States of America. A fictitious main organization cannot be selected.


You will be working individually every week to collect data and research and submitting the necessary milestone deliverables as scheduled (see below). Further, you will be cohesively incorporating the information researched along with any feedback or suggestions from your instructor into the final written product due in Week Seven and the presentation due in Week Eight.


Be sure and read below for all the details. You can also watch the video below for an explanation of the project.


Important Note


DeVry Librarians are a wealth of information – and will help you find sources. Using the chat feature you can talk to them about what you need to find, and they will teach you how to get the best out of the libraries resources for your research for scholarly journals with an array of data bases. Integrate research from online sources as well as our University’s online library (Links to an external site.) to support your ideas and conclusions.


Do not use Wikipedia as a reference source. If you find useful information from Wikipedia, triangulate your research and find other, more credible source(s) which provide the same (or better) information, and then utilize the information from that more credible source in your paper and reference page/bibliography.
