In November, Prof. Heesen visited the renowned Anna University in Chennai/India. He met the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dr. Rajaram, and the Director of the Centre for International Affairs, Dr. Azad.
The visit in Chennai allowed Prof. Heesen to meet with the faculty of IT as well as the faculty of Management and their PhD students (picture below).
In addition to faculty meetings, Prof. Heesen also gave a guest lecture on "Effective Strategy Execution".
In February/March 2012 Prof. Christine Koh and Prof. Bernd Heesen were co-teaching the course "HR Technologies, Metrics and Performance Management" at the Nanyang Business School in Singapore. The course was one of the first to leverage the SAP HCM solution in conjunction with SAP Employee Self-Service and SAP Manager Self-Service using the SAP Portal web access. The technology was provided by the University Competency Center at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane/Australia.
The picture below shows in the back from right Prof. Christine Koh and Prof. Bernd Heesen together with one of their student groups.
The course covers the business processes performed by the HR-Specialist (HR department) as well as the business processes performend by employees (e.g. update personal data and qualifications, enroll in training, display pay stub...) , by applicants (e.g. maitain applicant data, link application to vacancy, upload resume...), and line managers (execute performance appraisal, approve pay raise or leave...). In todays world much of the administrative workload is split between these HCM stakeholders and consequently the IT systems should be suited to support all of them equally well.
