Overview
You are an HR consultant, hired to resolve issues stemming from communication and coordination challenges between employees of the U.S. branch and the Singaporean headquarters of a software solutions provider. You decide to recommend organization-wide changes to resolve the issues related to communication and coordination. You evaluate the organizational change readiness and send a report on change management models, justifying your selection of a particular model.
Your efforts are appreciated and well received by the VP and the leadership team of the software solutions organization. However, they now want to understand how the training development needs of the workforce can be strategically aligned with the organization’s business needs.
You decide to prepare a presentation, detailing the training requirements for the employees and leadership of the U.S. branch, as well as leadership at the Singaporean headquarters. The strategy will target the identification of training that will improve communication and understanding between employees at the U.S. branch and leadership at both locations. Such a training strategy will facilitate interaction between both locations and align with the business strategy of expanding to the U.S. market.

Create a PowerPoint presentation with narration to explain the methods of strategically aligning skill development with business strategy in the course scenario.
Note: Remember to use both on-screen text and narration or speaker notes in your PowerPoint slides to convey your information effectively.

How can training enable the U.S. branch employees to adapt to the work culture of the Singaporean head office?
What are the learning objectives that will enable the American employees to meet the business goals defined for the U.S. branch?

Describe two strategic workforce development goals for the U.S. branch. (2–3 slides)

Which data points identify the development goals of the U.S. branch employees?

Overview

The VP of the U.S. branch tasks you, as an HR consultant, with developing a change management plan.

The report also identifies your selected model for the change management plan and justifies your selection.

You know that these are just expressions, that the person who speaks them doesn’t mean them literally. 

If you’ve ever read a book, listened to the radio, or had basically any kind of human interaction, then you’ve already had a lot of experience with figurative language.
If you were raised by wolves in the forgotten wilds of Ontario, you’ve never heard anything like it –get ready to have your mind blown.
You see, figurative language is so common that most of us use it all the time without even realizing. Assuming you’ve spent your life communicating with people and not howling at the moon, you probably have a whole store of  figures of speech  in your vocabulary.
If your dad says that a coworker stabbed him in the back, you don’t flip him over and start applying a tourniquet. Your sister’s claim that she has butterflies in her stomach doesn’t send you searching the web for a good gastroenterologist. When a friend says he’s been  shot by Cupid’s arrow, you don’t dive for cover and start scanning the bushes for a baby with a crossbow.
You know that these are just expressions, that the person who speaks them doesn’t mean them literally. And that’s all figurative language is: using words in a way that implies something beyond their literal meaning.

1. What are some examples of figurative language you use in your everyday communication? 
Give at least two examples of expressions or figures of speech that you use all the time, but don’t mean them literally .
