In 5-8 pages, write about the following scenario:

In this first assignment, you will have the opportunity to apply what you have learned thus far to a hypothetical situation. You will integrate course concepts from the first four modules as you write your paper in response to the following scenario.


You have been hired by an organization based upon your knowledge in Human Resources Management. The organization has a Human Resources Manager (HRM), but there are no formal process in place to manage the department.  The organization has been in business for about 2 years and is still considered a start-up.  Besides the HRM, there is a 2-member Information Technology (IT), e.g., Director and member, executive administrator for the CEO, a CFO, and an administrative section (includes a supervisor and three personnel all hired within the last 2 months).  The CEO also wants to hire a Chief Operations Officer (COO), but waited until you were hired to do so. In other words, the CEO needs your knowledge and expertise.

For this assignment, you select a type of business of interest, e.g., non-profit, for profit, healthcare, etc., and apply the personnel specifics mentioned above.  (Hint: focus on an area that interests you either positive or negative, because it may be useful in your dissertation in the future).  Please address the following in your 5-8 page paper:
