Discussion Questions
By the due date assigned, respond
to the assigned discussion questions and submit your responses to the
appropriate topic in this Discussion Area. Respond to the assigned
questions using the lessons and vocabulary found in the reading.
Select any one of the following starter
bullet point sections. Review the important themes within the
sub-questions of each bullet point. The sub-questions are designed to
get you thinking about some of the important issues. Your response should provide
a succinct synthesis of the key themes in a way that articulates a clear point,
position, or conclusion supported by research. Select a different
bullet point section than what your classmates have already posted so that we
can engage in several discussions on relevant topics. If all of the bullet points
have been addressed, then you may begin to reuse the bullet points with the
expectation that varied responses continue.
Question 1:
Evaluate an HRD program for a company that produces paper
Question 2:
Evaluate an article on strategic talent investment.
