How would you measure  whether your efforts are achieving the desired goals?

each question should be answered with a page and a half
pick a single company in the S&P 500 and answer the following four questions…
Experience  is a common job requirement – but aspiring professionals are often  frustrated by this obstacle to career advancement. They think “I need  experience to get the job BUT I need the job to get experience!!!” Maybe  you can relate to this. First, research and describe how your chosen  company is handling the question of education and experience  requirements in hiring. Then, explain how you would handle it  differently (if at all) if you were in charge of Human Resources and  Workforce Management for the same company. How much would or should be  necessary? Would it vary by job? If so, how? And are there any  exceptions?
2.  Some businesses focus a lot on succession  planning. Others, however, seem to just put off worrying about it until  someone dies, resigns, or gets fired. First, research and describe how  your chosen company is handling the questions of employee development  and succession planning. Then, explain how you would handle it  differently (if at all) if you were in charge of Human Resources and  Workforce Management for the same company. What kind of programs or  initiatives or incentives would you put in place? How would you measure  whether your efforts are achieving the desired goals?
3.  Most businesses run payroll biweekly, but  some do it more frequently and some less frequently. First, research  and describe how your chosen company is handling the question of payroll  frequency. Then, explain how you would handle it differently (if at  all) if you were in charge of Human Resources and Workforce Management  for the same company. What are the advantages and drawbacks to your  chosen frequency?
4.  Location is a critical variable in  determining not just where a business’s operations will be situated, but  also where it will find its human capital and talent. First, research  and describe how your chosen company is handling location strategy.  Then, explain how you would handle it differently (if at all) if you  were in charge of Human Resources and Workforce Management for the same  company. If you were asked to identify a new city (anywhere in the  United States) for a corporate headquarters office, what city would you  suggest and why? Be sure to consider variables like minimum wage and  taxes, average education levels, and other factors that would be  relevant to such a decision
minimum of eight (8) sources (two for each of the questions)

What is SPC (Statistical Process Control)?

Two tools used in the Control phase of the DMAIC cycle are the Control Chart, often called Statistical Process Control (SPC) Chart, and the Process Audit. You will use both tools to complete this assignment.
The Control Chart shows how a variable changes over time. Data are plotted in time order. A Control Chart always has a central line for the average. The chart also shows an upper line for the upper control limit (UCL) and a lower line for the lower control limit (LCL). This data helps to control processes, to predict outcomes, and to monitor the process. You will analyze a Control Chart provided in the assignment template.
You are analyzing the Control Chart as part of a Process Audit. You will be looking for “out of control” conditions and where the process is not working. You want to make sure the process is stable and meets requirements, so you will do some problem solving to figure out where and how to make changes in the process.
Before you begin, be sure to review the following resources:
