Soo, yeah, that's all mine (some of them we developed as a whole class). By no means a comprehensive list, but it covers a fair bit of the syllabus. And remember, this list is only worthwhile if you understand and can write about each of the items. Being able to name all 8 human resource strategies will maybe earn you one or two marks in an essay, the rest relies on understanding them.

Best of luck to everyone for Thursday morning.
