Selected | PAD 530 Public Personnel Management | Strayer University

  

In this course, you will conduct an interview to gather information for the assignments. The assignment scenario and interview guidelines are provided in the PAD530 Scenario for Assignment [DOCX] document. Also, please read the PAD530 Interview Guide [DOCX] that shows how the guidelines apply to the assignments in this course and aids in the planning of questions for the interview. Briefly, Strayer University interview guidelines include the following:

  • The purpose of the   assignment is to train students in interview/research methods, not to      develop or contribute to research that can be applied to situations beyond      that studied or that is created to share with others outside of the local      academic setting.
  • No publication of  projects containing the results of or information from the interviews is      allowed, including publication in social media, blogs, or the Internet      generally. The interview findings may only be shared in the class.
  • When presenting the results of their interviews to their instructor and/or classmates, students may not disclose personally identifiable information about an      interviewee, unless they have received written permission from the      interviewee as verified by their instructor.
  • All interviewees must be      at least 18 years old.

· Please note, the assignments in this course build upon one another.

· For these assignments, you will take on the role of a consultant for a government agency. Your consulting firm has been asked by the agency to conduct background research, interview agency representatives, compile a report, and provide recommendations for improvement of their personnel management system. The first role of the consultant is to become familiar with the agency, its departments, and key actors. You will develop the assignment in four parts, submitting each to your supervisor (your professor) who will review and grade your efforts.
