Review the IBM case and address the following issues in an integrated essay:
- What are the key features of the contrasting organizational structures that describe IBM’s HR organization before and after the change?
- Where will HR employees have the greatest challenge adapting to the new system and where will their roles, rewards and work challenges remain more constant? To what extent do you see capability, opportunity and motivation changing?
- Discuss the future profile of HR leaders and non-HR leaders in systems such as IBM’s.
Prepare a 5- to 6-page paper (not including title page and reference list) that addresses these issues. Include at least 5 library sources to strengthen the discussion.
