Portfolio Project Option # 1 – Decision Maker’s Report
For this Portfolio Project, you will select an organization that has yet to enter the global business world. The organization can be one for which you work, one with which you are familiar, or one you find through research. If you are not using the company for which you work, it is best to find a publicly traded company, because publicly traded companies are subject to providing information not required of private companies to provide. This will help you immensely in your research.
The organization you have chosen has decided that it would like to “go global” in terms of operations. You have been hired as the human resource manager for the new global initiative. No research has been conducted yet on this global initiative, so you will be laying all the groundwork for the decisions that will be involved regarding human resources.
Your Portfolio Project assignment is to create a report that will be used by the organization’s decision makers. Your report should include the following elements, in the order given below:
Executive Summary: This should be a topline executive report and should be written as though it would be distributed to the top leadership in your chosen organization. As noted in the lecture content for Week 7, it should be written after you have completed or nearly completed the full report. (Approximately two pages)
Organizational Profile: Provide a detailed profile of your chosen organization to give the reader the necessary background information to understand the type of company this is, what product or service it sells, how it operates, what its financial position is, etc. (Approximately one page)
Cultural Differences: As we have learned during this course, cultural differences are one of the major challenges facing International human resource professionals. Provide an in-depth discussion of the various cultural challenges, both domestic and foreign, that a new human resource manager will face and how they will be overcome. Make sure to provide specific examples.
Management strategy: Finally, based on what you have learned throughout the course, discuss how you would manage employees from a foreign country differently than those in the domestic country. Importantly, you should propose three to four specific strategies that an international human resource manager should adapt to better manage employees working in a foreign country.
