About this Item: Excel Books, 2010. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Managerial activities have become complex and it is necessary to make right decisions to avoid heavy losses. Whether it is a manufacturing unit, or a service organization, the resources have to be utilized to its maximum in an efficient manner. In such situations, there is a greater need for applying scientific methods for decision-making to increase the probability of coming up with good decisions. Quantitative analysis is a scientific approach to managerial decision-making. The successful use of quantitative techniques would help the organization in solving complex problems on time, with greater accuracy and in the most economical way. This book elaborates a variety of these techniques with relevant contextual real life problem areas. This book focuses on the need to demystify the subject and makes it easy for students to grasp the principles and details involved. It has been written in an easy and understandable manner, specifically for the beginners exposed to the subject for the first time. Hence, it addresses specific requirements that lead to a good knowledge about the subject. An attempt has also been made to explain things in a logical progression, in the simplest possible way, so that neophytes may quickly grasp the concepts and methodology. A novel approach in the book is the illustrative use of computers with TORA package, as a problem-solving tool. This will create awareness among the students about the enormous problem-solving solutions through computers and also help compare the results that are worked-out manually. It is hoped that the readers will benefit enormously and develop a better insight and knowledge on the subject matter.

About this Item: Jaico Publishing House, 2009. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. The HR profession has long fought to be recognised at the strategic level - and there is now increasing evidence to suggest that it has found its place at the `top table`. All that remains is for HR to add genuine value to the strategy-setting process. Paul Turner believes that this final element is achieved by pulling the disparate elements of strategy, forecasting and planning into a single and systematic process. His model is based on two key components : 1. The strategic human resource forecast-which takes the business strategy?, analyses its application to HR and projects the scenarios that may arise 2. The human resource plan-which takes the decisions made at the strategic and forecasting level and develops them into a series of co-ordinated business plans. This practical book presents a powerful step-by-step model and provides essential guidance on issues such as: persuading your organisation to adopt the model; and implementing and managing the key processes. An essential tool for every HR professional, this book will help ensure the function realises its full potential in contributing to business success within any organisation. Contents:- Introduction Part I : STRATEGY, FORECASTING, PLANNING AND PEOPLE : 1. HR and its Contribution to Strategy 2. Models of Strategy : The Growing Importance of People 3. From Manpower Planning to Strategic Human Resource Forecasting Part II : THE STRATEGIC HUMAN RESOURCE FORECAST : 4. The Component Parts of the Strategic Human Resource Forecast 5. Developing Organisational Strategy and Strategic Options 6. Creating HR Scenarios 7. Assessing the Demand for People 8. Assessing the Supply of People in Organisations (by John Philpott, Chief Economist, CIPD) 9. Assessing the Cultural Implications of Strategy 10. Gap Analysis Part III : THE HUMAN RESOURCE PLAN : 11.

About this Item: Excel Books, 2010. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Managerial activities have become complex and it is necessary to make right decisions to avoid heavy losses. Whether it is a manufacturing unit, or a service organization, the resources have to be utilized to its maximum in an efficient manner. In such situations, there is a greater need for applying scientific methods for decision-making to increase the probability of coming up with good decisions. Quantitative analysis is a scientific approach to managerial decision-making. The successful use of quantitative techniques would help the organization in solving complex problems on time, with greater accuracy and in the most economical way. This book elaborates a variety of these techniques with relevant contextual real life problem areas. This book focuses on the need to demystify the subject and makes it easy for students to grasp the principles and details involved. It has been written in an easy and understandable manner, specifically for the beginners exposed to the subject for the first time. Hence, it addresses specific requirements that lead to a good knowledge about the subject. An attempt has also been made to explain things in a logical progression, in the simplest possible way, so that neophytes may quickly grasp the concepts and methodology. A novel approach in the book is the illustrative use of computers with TORA package, as a problem-solving tool. This will create awareness among the students about the enormous problem-solving solutions through computers and also help compare the results that are worked-out manually. It is hoped that the readers will benefit enormously and develop a better insight and knowledge on the subject matter.
