Abstract

The fundamentals of the Strategic Human Resource Management program at the University of Denver were applied to solve an HR challenge for a small nonprofit organization. Modeled on student consulting engagements sponsored by the U.S. Small Business Administration, the student and organization together identified a problem: the requirement for updated job descriptions and a viable performance appraisal process for the organization's staff. The student gathered relevant information, analyzed the collected data, and presented conclusions and recommendations to the organization. Through a job analysis process of observation and employee interviews, formal job descriptions were developed and presented for review. Also discussed is the possible implementation of web-based performance appraisal platforms to meet the organization's requirements.
