At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Wednesday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation.
The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.
A client has asked you to help them retain talented workers. They are facing high turnover in their engineering departments. They are unsure what is creating this problem but exit interviews with the engineers have indicated that there may be a problem with a lack of upward mobility. Discuss aspects of career planning that the organization can use to retain highly talented staff. Use examples of organizations that have career planning systems such as succession planning, education assistance etc. as part of their strategic human resources tools.
In your own words, please post a response to the Discussion Board and comment on other postings. You will be graded on the quality of your postings.
