Favourite Quotes
"Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them: A desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill." -Muhammad Ali

You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world. (Tom Brokaw)

Lecture Notes
Available from Photostat shop before lectures or preferably one day before the start of new week

Usually the lecture material will cover the topics of one week Lecture Notes also now available online on the given website address (www.themirs.net/HRM.html)
Lecture Notes will not be in detail format rather these will contain topics of discussion and important announcements regarding assessments. Most Importantly Lecture Notes are just a supporting material and students must not forget to read books for detail and complete understanding (In case of HRM as a subject you need to do extensive reading on topics under discussion & look for majority of web sites Farhan Mir for practical know how) IMS 2007 2007

Course Administration
Sessionals
Written assignments (Small Tasks) (details in coming lectures) Idea is to initiate research oriented writing not cut-copy-paste Attendance, Presentations, Quiz & Class Discussion & Participation (as a regular activity) Volunteer presentations (you must not be that familiar with this kind of stuff but you need to respond to it quickly!) Formal Presentations in groups and if you want to take it one step ahead you could arrange small seminars for other classes (preferably your juniors) on given Research Topics

One of the Major Sessionals


Case Study Presentation
Students in groups of 3-5 will choose an e-Business (Preferably a Pakistani Organization) Case should be developed on the given format (A model format will be discussed in upcoming lectures) Students need to develop a proper case study using the case study development guidelines Eventually will present their findings in the shape of a Presentation in front of the class or classes on Multimedia Students need to submit both Hard (Printed) and Soft copies (Computer files) of the Case itself and that of the PowerPoint Presentation This is day 1 so you can start working now! I will myself present at least one Case Study well before the presentation schedule so that you people Farhan Mir have an idea IMS 2007 2007

Course Orientation
Basically Theoretical focus
Introduction of Concepts and Issues regarding HRM (This subject is developed in case study mode: it means that there are lot of case studies)

But
The practical orientation will also be also be a major focus of the course (this will include practical demonstration on multimedia) Lecture notes will include more graphical explanation of things to give more practical orientation about concepts & applications especially the Organizational Examples Formal Presentation from Students will also work in this regard Video or Audio Presentation will also be part of the lectures Farhan Mir

Text and References


Focus will be on topics rather Chapters of any text Many Text/books are available in market Lloyd L. Byars & Leslie W. Rue . (2004). Human Resource Management. (8th Ed). McGraw Hill Book Company
R. Wayne Mondy & Robert M. Noe (2003). Human Resource Management. (6thEd). Prentice Hall Company Gary Dessler. (2004). Human Resource Management. (8th Ed). McGraw Hill Book Company

But Not necessarily every thing is taught from the Text, Students need to broaden their view and consult as many additional references as possible (Preferably available in local market and from the Internet) This time few simple yet important articles also be discussed during the lectures Case Studies are now a definite part of the curriculum

Examination
I personally believe in thorough studies so usually no choices given in the exam Every thing discussed, during the class or given as reading material, could be part of the exams Questions will be formulated in a way to examine both bookish as well as conceptual thinking Other details will be given close to Mid I will try to follow my simple rule that is
Ill be very friendly in the lectures and very strict in the exam hall (believe me no chance Farhan Mir of misconduct) IMS 2007 2007
