I’m a student in the California State University, Stanislaus Executive Masters in Business Administration (CSUSTAN EMBA), Cohort # 5 in Tracy, California. This blog is a result of an assignment from the BUS 5250 Leading and Managing People for Success course taught by esteemed HRM faculty, Dr. Ed Hernandez. The assignment is to create a blog with active discussion updates, essentially a practical website with links and content covering a very specific management topic. I am torn between social/human ecology and succession planning. My other hobby is herb/vegetable/fruit gardening, so I was inspired to do a little of each here, using the blog HR Garden. Thanks for visiting.
