Data for decision making – measuring organizational performance

Write a 3-4 page executive summary using the

Capratek: Data for Decision Making – Measuring Organizational Performance
simulation to interpret data and information on performance in order to improve quality.

For this assignment, you do not need to conduct any numerical calculations. As an HR generalist, manager, or director, your role will be to use and interpret data, and add your expertise to make sound recommendations to the leadership of the organization. As with any new role, taking on the role of a strategic business partner requires the acquisition of new skills. In the case of HR professionals, these skills are mainly in the area of measuring the impact of what they do in the organization. It is not sufficient to merely know of all the traditional HR skills, such as staffing, training, compensation, benefits, labor relations, employee relations, or safety. Today’s HR professional must develop the ability to consult and provide critical evaluation.

The Interactive Learning Module used for this assignment,

Capratek: Data for Decision Making – Measuring Organizational Performance
, is a media simulation designed to reflect issues that an HR professional would encounter in the real world. Using this simulation will require you to make some decisions about which employees to gather data from and about what data to use in making estimates and projections. While this might seem untidy to some of you, keep in mind that in real HR situations, the answers to questions are seldom tidy and will not come out the same for everyone who tries to find the answer.
