Human Resource Management

  1. 1. 北大光华管理学院课程大纲 课程编号: 02813080 授课对象: IPHD students, HR/OB major 课程名称:人力资源管理 英文名称: HRM Seminar 1 周学时 /总学时: 3/33~48 学 分: 2/32 任课教师: Fanmin Kong, Ph.D. 开课学期: Spring, 2009 先修课程: Research Methods, Master level HRM, OT, and OB Seminar Venue: Classroom 216, GSM Building #1 Seminar Session Time: 15:40 – 18:40, Monday, Feb. 16 – June 1st, 2009 Instructor Office: 443 GSM Building #2 Office line: 6275 3198; Email: Office Hours: walk-in 14:00 – 16:00, on Wednesdays, or other time slots by appointment. 一、课程概述 This seminar course is designed to provide a systematic analysis of these important issues in the field of Human Resources and Industrial Relations (HRIR): the origin and evolution of HRIR as a research field, the theoretical models in HRIR (e.g., Agency Theory, Transaction Cost Theory, Motivation Theory, Human Capital Theory, HPWS Paradigm, Identity Theory, and Social Network Model, etc.), research design and methods in HRIR, and fundamental issues in HRIR, i.e., Staffing, Training, and Development of Human Resources, Performance Management, Compensation and Benefits, Employment Relations, Corporate Culture, E-HR, and International HRM. This seminar would be delivered in guided discussion sessions, and your consummate effort and active participation are strongly encouraged. 二、课程目标(包括学生所提高的技能要求) Seminar participants are expected to understand, make critical observations and comments on, and gain creative insights in, the basic issues examined in the papers assigned for this 1 Starting from Fall 2008, Newly-enrolled IPHD students will earn 2 credits from this seminar, thus need at least 11 sessions or 33 meeting hours to meet this requirement. However, 2007-enrolled doctoral students are still required participate 16 sessions in this seminar to earn their 3 credits. This transition period should be end by 2009-2010 Academic year at PKU. 2 Ibid. 1

My main purpose of designing and delivering this HRM seminar is to teach participants what we can learn from studying these classical or popular journal papers. In particular, I would like to instruct doctoral students the following: how did those leading scholars in HRIR approach their questions, establish theoretical frameworks, design various methods, conduct research, analyze data, and finally present their research work? All doctoral students at GSM, by design, have to write a dissertation to demonstrate their qualification in order to earn a degree from our IPHD program. Therefore, this seminar would be a necessary stage to help doctoral students in HR/OB major to make progresses towards that goal. 三、内容提要及学时分配 This is a tentative schedule, given the fact that there are too many papers in HRIR deemed to learn. I will make adjustments among weeks, if all of us think that necessary.
