Identify the current issues the business is facing based on the details of the scenario and provide a plan and analysis for a HRIS based on those issues.
Provide a blueprint for the new system and propose a type of HRIS for the organization that you believe is the most efficient and effective.
Discuss the function that the HRIS serves, and identify how that system will solve the business issue.
Compare and contrast at least three HRIS vendors. Based on this comparison, make a case for the one vendor that you recommend for your client.
Determine how you will implement the HRIS using one of the change models discussed in our text.
