HCM547 Technology, Disruption, and Human Capital Management continues the theme of disruption and change that was developed in HCM545, examining the way that technological disruption is transforming the discipline of human capital management and businesses more generally. The course commences with coverage of the digital disruption megatrend, paying particular attention to segment on artificial intelligence and automation, before considering the move towards flexible, short-term, and contingent work in the so-called “gig economy”. Opportunities and costs will both be considered, viewed from both a business and an ethical/societal perspective. The second half of the course will supplement content found in various core courses, particularly HCM531 and HCM533, examining the effects of digitalisation, automation, and other forms of disruption on traditional human capital functions such as learning and development, performance management, and talent management.
