Over the course of 8 weeks, how many hours do you have available to focus on your part-time studies? *


 
Perfect!

This course consists of 8 Modules, and it'll take you around 10-12 hours per week to:
            - read your course notes,
            - watch video lectures,
            - engage with your classmates, and
            - complete quizzes or assignments 
before you can move on to the next weeks' Module.

 
That could work, but you may need to squeeze in a few more before you go to bed.

Our past students have, however, reported that it takes them 10-12 hours each week to fully engage with their course materials.

Which of these is not used to measure the integration of HR and organisational strategy? 



 
Oops, that's incorrect. Separation is used to measure HR and organisational strategy integration. 

When organisational and HR strategy are completely separate, it's a sign that organisational strategy has not been adequately communicated and cascaded throughout the organisation.

The correct answer would have been C: Engagement, which is not used to measure the integration. 

The good news? You'll be learning about all this and more in this strategy-focused, advanced course!

 
Oops, that's incorrect. A 'fit' is used to measure HR and organisational strategy integration. 

When there is a link between organisational and HR strategy, a 'fit' has been achieved to a greater or lesser extent. This signifies a level of recognition of the role that HR plays in strategic success. However, they are not linked as closely as they could be. 

The correct answer would have been C: Engagement, which is not used to measure the integration. 

The good news? You'll be learning about all of this and more in this strategy-focused, advanced course!



 
Correct! Engagement is not used to measure the integration of organisational and HR strategy. 

Integration is measured by whether a 'fit' has been achieved, if it's holistic and if there is separation. 

The good news? You'll learn about all this and more in this strategy-focused, advanced course!

 
Oops, that's incorrect. 

When HR strategy forms part of organisational strategy, we refer to the integration as holistic, which views the management of people as an essential part of achieving strategic success and competitive advantage, 

The correct answer would have been C: Engagement, which is not used to measure the integration. 

The good news? You'll be learning about all of this and more in this strategy-focused, advanced course!

 
Finally, what's your strongest motivation for taking this course? *


 
Great!

Based on what you are looking for, the advanced course may not be the right option for you.
