Description:
This course examines and applies the valuation and management of intangible assets in designing and managing post-industrial organizations. As organizations increasingly rely on technology to produce value, these technological solutions require interactions with other forms of value creation like Human Capital Management, Intellectual Property development and Organization Culture. The first part of the course focuses on human capital engineering using an interdisciplinary approach, drawing on diverse fields including industrial-organizational psychology, industrial engineering, economics and artificial intelligence to create a holistic view of how work in its various forms creates value. The second part of the course addresses workforce analytics, providing the student with a knowledge and understanding of current best practices, issues, and decision points in building an effective human capital analytic program. This part of the course will also focus on data structure and design to enable automation and predictive modeling and will place an emphasis on technology-enabled reporting.
