For the final assignment of this course, you will write a research paper on change in a human resource development (HRD) organization that you work for, or would like to work for.
Within your research paper, explain how the following tasks can be accomplished at your chosen organization using competency or case-based decision making training methods:
1. improve productivity (efficiency and effectiveness),
2. improve employee satisfaction with the quality of their work life,
3. improve the ability of the organization to revitalize and develop itself over time,
4. improve organizational processes and outputs, and
5. measure if your improvement efforts are successful.
In your explanation, do not simply state your opinion. Include researched evidence to show why your strategies and approaches will be effective.
Your research paper must be at least three pages in length, not including the title and reference pages.
You are required to use at least two outside sources; one must be from the CSU Online Library. All sources used, including the required
readings, must be cited and referenced according to APA guidelines.

The application of the APA writing style shall be practical, functional, and appropriate to each academic level, with the
primary purpose being the documentation (citation) of sources. CSU requires that students use APA style for certain
papers and projects. Students should always carefully read and follow assignment directions and review the associated
