Human resource Management
People and Organisations
Dr Bruce Thompson
I have a good understanding about Human Resource Management. Going through human resource management has taught me so much more than stuff about how the working companies deal with their success in employing the right person for the right job. I have learned here how to write and express myself, how to think for myself, and how to find the answers to the things that I don't know. Most importantly I have learned how important wider world and the people belonging to it (Lecture 1, What is Organisational Behavioural?, 18/10/2011). People and Organisation module has helped me develop more knowledge about HRM, people and organisational behaviour from individual, to team and organisation (Lecture 2, Learning, 25/10,2011). I have initial required skills such as how to communicate and exhibit my initiative to people, clearly and efficiently. However, I believe I need to improvement more here; with this modules objective information and theories I can enhance and better my reading and writing skills (Lecture 3, Personality, 01/11/2011). During this modules lecture we have had a lot of discussion and group work, I spent additional time to improve my writing by writing my understandings. However, there was more to this module than just taking a note or even getting into discussion. While attending this module I realised how integrated learning this module is when it came to being efficient and well-focused. For instance, , Dr Bruce Thompson, our module lecturer, always came to the lecture with prepared handouts where the lecture would go on onto a particular subject and just so that we understood everything clearly, most of the times we will have a short quiz session where he would ask questions and we will all give out the answers in turns. Dr Bruce Thompson motivated us by giving chocolates for every right answer during our short quiz sessions; this and his positive attitude to bringing more sense into this particular module, has motivated me more and helped me become more confident in myself. The opportunity to do that showed me that there are so many ways that one can learn that are both fun and educational. The Human resource module also taught me basis analysis about how everyone in an organization should be responsible for achieving organizational goals and the goals are achieved only through performance. In a particular organization managers should not only consider his/her performance but also consider the secondary performance and all other employees. But then again, the manager should not only comprehend, predict and control the behavior of the people working in the association but also develop and implement systems and conditions for people to perform (Lecture 4, Communication and Perception, 08/11,2011). A person at work should be respected in whatever to task is given to fulfill. From my point of view, work behavior is the action that must content two conditions; first of all it should be noticeable and second of all considerable. There is a spontaneous relationship between performance & behavior, behavior being its cause and performance its effect. I can say that performance is a purpose of behavior. In an association, the manager should strengthen necessary behavior so that better performance can be attained and also they should minimalize or dismiss the disagreeable behaviors. Behavior and its strength are determined by a number of personal and environmental factors. The causes of work behavior includes the personal forces that generate behavioral purpose like principles and approaches; individual norms and enabling forces that translate the behavioral meaning into an actual behavior like skill, inspiration and the work...
