BMA330, Strategic Issues in Human Resource Management
Unit Description
This unit aims to develop students’ understanding of the complexities of strategic human resource
management (HRM) in the context of Australia's changing socio‐economic climate and the global
arena. The unit builds on the roles and functions of HRM introduced in BMA1/221 and consolidated
in other Human Resource units, by examining the impact of HR policies and practices in
organisations from a strategic perspective.
The unit will permit students to develop their understanding of HR theory and research within a
strategic HRM framework. The focus will be on ‘bridging’ the gap between theory and practice by
considering how published theory and research might be more effectively utilised in practice
settings and how innovative HR practices may inform and provide opportunities for HR theory and
research.
Prior Knowledge &/or Skills OR Pre-Requisite Unit(s)
BMA101, BMA121, plus any two level 200 units (i.e. 25 percent of level 200) in the HRM major.
Enrolment in the Unit
Unless there are exceptional circumstances, students should not enrol in this unit after the end of
week two of semester, as the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics (TSBE) cannot guarantee
that:


any extra assistance will be provided by the teaching team in respect of work covered in the
period prior to enrolment; and
penalties will not be applied for late submission of any piece or pieces of assessment that were
due during this period.
When does the unit commence?
The unit commences officially in Week 1 of Semester 2, 2014. Materials relevant to the unit will be
made available on MyLO one to two weeks prior to the commencement of the semester.

MyLO Expectations
1.
Students are expected to maintain the highest standards of conduct across all modes of
communication, either with staff or with other students. Penalties may be imposed if the Unit
Coordinator believes that, in any instance or mode of communication, your language or
content is inappropriate or offensive. MyLO is a public forum. Due levels of respect,
professionalism and high ethical standards are expected of students at all times.
2.
Submission of assessment tasks via MyLO presumes that students have read, understood and
abide by the requirements relating to academic conduct, and in particular, those requirements
relating to plagiarism. All work submitted electronically is presumed to be “signed-off” by the
student submitting as their own work. Any breach of this requirement will lead to student
misconduct processes.
3.
MyLO is an Internet service for teaching and learning provided by the University. It is
expected that you check your units in MyLO for updates at least once a day.

unit content on MyLO. You only need to do this once in each MyLO unit.
Other important resources on MyLO
Students are expected to regularly check on MyLO for any updates in relation to the unit. Essentially,
MyLO has been incorporated into the delivery of this unit to enhance students' learning experience
by providing access to up-to-date course materials and allowing for online discussion. In addition to
the lecture slides which are uploaded on MyLO on a weekly basis, other unit-related materials such
as supplementary readings and assessment guides can also be accessed on MyLO. Besides, students
are also expected to engage in an active discussion about issues related to the unit through the
discussion forums or chat rooms that are available on MyLO, and this is particularly helpful for
distance students who may utilise the facilities available on MyLO to get in touch with their fellow
distance students and form groups to complete some of the assessment tasks for this unit. In this
regard, MyLO should be treated as the unit's critical platform for learning and communication.

Assessment Item 2 – Group Presentation
Task Description:
In the second workshop students will form groups (either 2 or 3 people per
group), and each group will be allocated a week for their presentation. The
week prior to their presentation date each group will be given their topic
(this will occur during the workshops). They will then have one week to
prepare, with presentations to be made during workshops. It is up to each
group to determine how their presentations will be made, but the
expectation is that each group member will play an equal role on balance
across the roles associated with researching, preparing and delivering the
presentation.
Students who are unable to complete the group presentation task on
medical or compassionate grounds (work or other commitments are not
considered 'compassionate grounds') may request that they be permitted to
submit alternative coursework.
Groups are required to complete a Group Mark Allocation Adjustment Form
(available from MyLO) and email this to the unit coordinator at least 24 hours
prior to their presentation.

BMA330, Strategic Issues in Human Resource Management
Assessment Item 3 Task Description:
The literature review is an opportunity for students to participate in
undertaking a small amount of research on a chosen HRM topic as agreed
with the Unit Coordinator. From both the learning and assessment points of
view, the exercise is about developing some insight into HRM research by
doing a more extensive literature review.
In your assignment you should indicate a possible theoretical framework
based on your literature review for considering the issues of contemporary
significance in your topic area. You will need to be careful to choose a strictly
limited area to research or you will end up with something unmanageable.
The nature of the research should not require the seeking of ethical
approval.
Process:
Students are required to identify a contemporary HRM issue that they would
like to research as part of their literature review. Students can choose from
topics covered in the unit, or broader HRM issues that they are aware
of/interested in. Students should frame their research around a suitable
research question or hypothesis. Once a topic has been selected it must be
approved by the unit coordinator, with a formal one-paragraph literature
review proposal submitted by MyLO before the end of week four (8 August
2014). If students are uncertain about potential topics they should contact
the unit coordinator.
Once the proposal has been approved students can commence work on their
literature review. Your review should seek to explore the current state of
research on your chosen topic and explain the impact of this research area to
the practice of HRM. Students are encouraged to think critically about their
chosen topic area, and to consider the impact of this research on a range of
organisational types (for examples, SMEs, family firms, government
organisations). Students should also use a range of academic sources in their
review. This includes academic journals and research monographs but
excluding textbooks.

Academic Referencing and Style Guide
In your written work you will need to support your ideas by referring to scholarly literature, works of
art and/or inventions. It is important that you understand how to correctly refer to the work of
others and maintain academic integrity.
Failure to appropriately acknowledge the ideas of others constitutes academic dishonesty
(plagiarism), a matter considered by the University of Tasmania as a serious offence.
The appropriate referencing style for this unit is: the Harvard style. For information on presentation
of assignments, including referencing styles:
http://utas.libguides.com/content.php?pid=27520&sid=199808
Review of Assessment and Results
Review of Internal Assessment
It is expected that students will adhere to the following policy for a review of any piece of
continuous/internal assessment. The term continuous/internal assessment includes any assessment
task undertaken across the teaching phase of any unit (such as an assignment, a tutorial
presentation, and online discussion, and the like), as well as any capstone assignment or take-home
exam.
Within five (5) days of release of the assessment result a student may request a meeting with the
assessor for the purpose of an informal review of the result (in accordance with Academic
Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/university-council/universitygovernance/rules). During the meeting, the student should be prepared to discuss specifically the
marks for the section(s) of the marking criteria they are disputing and why they consider their
mark(s) is/are incorrect. The assessor will provide a response to the request for review within five (5)
days of the meeting.
If the student is dissatisfied with the response they may request a formal review of assessment by
the Head of School, with the request being lodged within five (5) days of the informal review being
completed. A Review of Internal Assessment Form must be submitted with the formal review
(http://www.studentcentre.utas.edu.au/examinations_and_results/forms_files/review_of_assessm
ent.pdf).
Review of Final Exam/Result
In units with an invigilated exam students may request a review of their final exam result. You may
request to see your exam script after results have been released by completing the Access to Exam
Script Form, which is available from the TSBE Office, or at the following link –
http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources. Your unit coordinator will
then contact you by email within five (5) working days of receipt of this form to go through your
exam script.
Should you require a review of your final result a formal request must be made only after
completing the review of exam script process list above. To comply with UTAS policy, this request
must be made within ten (10) days from the release of the final results (in accordance with
Academic Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/university-council/universitygovernance/rules). You will need to complete an Application for Review of Assessment Form, which
17
BMA330, Strategic Issues in Human Resource Management
can be accessed from
www.studentcentre.utas.edu.au/examinations_and_results/forms_files/review_of_assessment.pdf.
Note that if you have passed the unit you will be required to pay $50 for this review.
The TSBE reserves the right to refuse a student request to review final examination scripts should
this process not be followed.

BMA330, Strategic Issues in Human Resource Management
Academic Misconduct and Plagiarism
Academic misconduct includes cheating, plagiarism, allowing another student to copy work for an
assignment or an examination, and any other conduct by which a student:
(a) seeks to gain, for themselves or for any other person, any academic advantage or advancement
to which they or that other person are not entitled; or
(b) improperly disadvantages any other student.
Students engaging in any form of academic misconduct may be dealt with under the Ordinance of
Student Discipline. This can include imposition of penalties that range from a deduction/cancellation
of marks to exclusion from a unit or the University. Details of penalties that can be imposed are
available in the Ordinance of Student Discipline – Part 3 Academic Misconduct, see
www.utas.edu.au/universitycouncil/legislation.
Plagiarism is a form of cheating. It is taking and using someone else’s thoughts, writings or
inventions and representing them as your own, for example:
•
•
•
using an author’s words without putting them in quotation marks and citing the source;
using an author’s ideas without proper acknowledgment and citation; or
copying another student’s work.
It also means using ones’ own work from previously submitted assessment items if repeating a unit.
If you have any doubts about how to refer to the work of others in your assignments, please
consult your lecturer or tutor for relevant referencing guidelines, and the academic integrity
resources on the web at http://www.academicintegrity.utas.edu.au/ The intentional copying of
someone else’s work as one’s own is a serious offence punishable by penalties that may range from
a fine or deduction/cancellation of marks and, in the most serious of cases, to exclusion from a unit,
a course, or the University.
The University and any persons authorised by the University may submit your assessable works to
a plagiarism checking service, to obtain a report on possible instances of plagiarism. Assessable
works may also be included in a reference database. It is a condition of this arrangement that the
original author’s permission is required before a work within the database can be viewed.
For further information on this statement and general referencing guidelines, see
