Full-time MSc HRM   –  Research Methods and Professional Skills

The  Consultancy Skills Assignment  (50% weighting)

You are required to analyse a case study where you will be taking on the role of an HR consultant. This assignment is about research methods and the consultancy process, so you are NOT required to solve the problem(s) in the case study.  

You should present your ideas in a 3,500 word report.  You are required to submit an electronic copy to the Dropbox on NOW in the Research Methods and Professional Skills module.  Harvard referencing is required.  A copy of the assessment criteria for this assignment is available on NOW. 

Use the following as a checklist for the structure and content of your report.

1. Introduction

Outline the purpose and structure of your assignment (briefly). 

2. (Main body)  Choose your own title for this section

In this section, you should consider the various ways in which your research could be carried out.  This should include ideas on what information you need to collect, how to get this information, who to include (your sampling method), what methods of data collection could be used such as a questionnaire, interviews, focus groups and so on. You could provide examples of the kinds of questions you would include in a questionnaire or interview and how you would collect the data using a quantitative and/or qualitative method.  Consider any practical and ethical problems. Make sure this section is properly underpinned by academic theory on research methods and consultancy.

3. Conclusions 

Briefly summarise the key points in your discussion of the research design. 

4. Recommendations

Put forward your suggestions for the way in which you think this research project should be carried out.  Draw up an implementation plan including details of timescales, priorities, responsibilities and costs/benefits (and any other details you think are appropriate.) 

Remember – this assignment is about designing a research project just like the Applied Consultancy Projects you will soon be undertaking.  You need to demonstrate to us that you can consider an organisational issue and plan a research project.  But of course in this case, you do not know the results of your research as you cannot actually carry it out so do not ‘invent’ results.  You are not being asked to suggest a new structure for the HR department – that is something for the organisation to do as an outcome of your research.
