This twelve-week course takes a strategic approach to the management of people at work. It assumes a philosophical perspective that people are considered to be human capital and must be treated as an investment and not an expense. The concept of managing people as ‘talent’ emerges and the view that this talent can be used effectively as a tool for creating a competitive advantage in an uncertain global environment is explored.
The objectives of this course are to:
- expose participants to the importance of matching the organization’s talent to the organization’s goals and objectives
- develop an awareness between managing human capital as an investment and not a cost
- facilitate a positive philosophical perspective of “people” as human capital with a critical role to play in creating sustainability and competitiveness for their organization.
Participants should have completed the UWI Open Campus Supervisory Management Certificate or possess a first degree.
