Assignment Brief and Guidance:
Talent management is an organization’s commitment to recruit, hire, retain, and develop the most talented and competent employees available in the job market. With the increasing competition and changing dynamics of the labour market, talent management has become integral part of a business strategies that enables organizations to retain their topmost talented and skilled employees, to compete and survive sustainability.
Oman aiming to diversify its economy, and reduce its dependence on expatriates, talent management is strategic option for effective Omanization. In fact, Oman vision 2040 has emphasized developing of human capital by relying on national talents. However, managing Omani talents has enormous challenges, like shortage of appropriate and competent talents in the market, high financial compensation demanded, increased talent turnover, preferences to work in public sector and the difficulty to develop a national strategy that appeals to multiple generations…etc. A prudent talent strategy requires not only recruiting the right Omani talents but also retaining, developing their expertise, and changing their attitude on a continuous basis to suit the dynamic nature of job profiles whether in public or private sector.
Assume, that you are an HR manager working in a company or Ministry in Oman, The General Manager (GM) assigns you a project to review the existing talent management policy in the company or Ministry, identify its challenges and gaps, and develop a strategy that offers the best possible solution to enhance Omanization process. Given the current circumstances and to drive the successful implementation of Oman vision 2040, the GM requested you to initiate the project and submit the report in two phases. Phase one includes developing a proposal and phase two is a complete report to be submitted within three months on the approval of Phase 1 by the General Manager.
The report should

Conduct a literature review using a range of sources relating to the research topic. Evaluate the validity and reliability of the sources, discussing current understanding on the talent management. In your report discuss the sources of literature found and how they relate or otherwise to the topic of talent management. Your report should critically evaluate literature to assess the validity of the literature in supporting the topic talent management.
2. Develop a project proposal for researching the research objective identified
Your research proposal identifies the purpose of the research project with clear aim and objectives and justifies the chosen research methods in terms of the research question. Discuss the ethical issues which will need to be considered and examine the research methods and approaches to be taken. Prepare an action plan with target dates and methods for monitoring and updating your activities to ensure your meet the deadline for the final written report.
3. Carry out independent primary research

This is where you will begin your first paragraph. The information contained in this paragraph will include the description of the work of art. Description is the first step in the critical analysis process. You should describe the work in such a way that someone who has never seen the work will get a clear, accurate mental picture of the image. Remember to always start this step by writing the information from the credit line (artist, title, and date) using complete sentences. Titles of works of art should always be italicized. After writing the credit line information (using complete sentences), you will describe everything you see in the image. To help organize your thoughts, start with the objects in the foreground, and work your way to the background.
This paragraph will contain the analysis of the image. Analysis is the second step of the critical analysis process. This is where you will write about how the artist has organized the composition using the elements of art and the principles of design. It is a good idea to have a list of the terms (elements of art and principles of design) as you write. This way, you can refer to the list and then to the work to see if you find evidence of the artist using those features to organize the composition.
This paragraph will contain the interpretation of the image. This is where you will include your own personal ideas as to what the image means. Look to the previous two paragraphs for clues. Remember, the way you interpret a work of art may be different than how another person interprets the same work, and that is to be expected. Our interpretations are based on our memories and life experiences. The key is to form an idea and elaborate on it. It will not be wrong, as long as it is based on the image you are analyzing. This is the subjective nature of art at work, but this is also what makes art exciting.
The final step will be the judgment. Is the work successful or not? Why or why not? Remember to base your judgment on one of the three theories of critical analysis. The theories are as follows: formal, contextual, and expressive. If you would like to include your personal preference as it relates to the work, then I encourage you to do so, but only after you have given your academic judgment of the piece.

2 Primary vs. Secondary Stakeholders at Saudi Aramco Company Hassan Alhaih Jordan
Primary vs. Secondary Stakeholders at Saudi Aramco Company

Primary vs. Secondary Stakeholders at Saudi Aramco Company
Primary and secondary investors are common entities with companies. Primary stakeholders are the people or entities that participate in direct economic transactions or have a direct interest within a company, such as employees, customers, or suppliers. Secondary investors are people or entities with indirect association or benefits with a company, such as business partners, consumer groups, and trade unions. Saudi Aramco Company is an example of a company that has both primary and secondary investors. The primary stakeholders at the company include multiple employees. They work in various departments such as oil and natural gas exploration and production, logistics, power generation, supporting services such as marketing, information technology, and human resource (Schlossberg et al., n.d). Also, its customers across global boundaries such as Asia, the US, Europe, and the Mediterranean, the Saudi government since it is state-owned, the local communities, and suppliers. The secondary stakeholders include competitors, media, the public, pressure groups, and regulatory bodies.
The president and chief executive officer of Saudi Aramco is Amin H. Nasser. According to Saudi Aramco Company (2021), under his leadership, the company actively engages in innovative and technological strategies to cause advancements. Due to his extensive experience in leadership positions, he can influence the company’s efforts to produce cleaner energy and products through investing in promising technologies. The company’s core principle has been the enhancement of the communities where it operates. Hence, they are obligated to ensure functional relationships with their stakeholders, primarily the primary stakeholders. For instance, the company has implemented training and skill development programs that target the employees. Moreover, Saudi Aramco Company (2021) suggests that they intentionally recruit, develop, and retain an extensively diverse workforce that significantly influences professional growth. For instance, the company has numerous collaborations with global universities like Harvard Business School and colleges to offer robust career development programs to shape the future workforce.
Moreover, the company has selected multiple local micro industries that support creating long-term impacts in the community surrounding their operations. The support is centered around training, training facilities, knowledge sharing, and technology advancements that accelerate the beneficiaries’ success in their undertakings. Additionally, the company ensures that it continuously improves production to refine its products (Saudi Aramco Company, 2021). They strive to offer their customers cleaner energy solutions by investing in multiple technologies such as next-generation fuel-engine interfaces and crude oil-to-chemicals processes that ensure their customers access world-class products. To their suppliers and other business partners, they provide that they practice ethical business practices. Besides, the company has a Code of Conduct that promotes its values and extends and maintains its ethical standards across the supplier network. Thus, extended mutually beneficial partnerships.
Lastly, the company is under the ownership of the Saudi Arabia government. It is obligated to the government to ensure that the government effectively oversees the management of oil assets. The company ensures that they comply with the set regulations and standards that guide oil and natural gas exploration, ensuring sustainability. Similarly, it participates in ethical business practices that provide a functional business environment that supports numerous people through employment and the supply chain. Further, the company maintains a cordial relationship with their global markets, which helps with the association between Saudi Arabia and these countries. For instance, the company has a natural disaster relief program in China that helps with disaster recovery measures when natural disasters strike. They also have a habitat preservation program in Japan that seeks to enhance the environment within the country. The program engages in activities that ensure environmental protection and sustainable use of ecological resources.

Introduction Week 1: In my high school senior yearbook, the saying on
Introduction Week 1:
In my high school senior yearbook, the saying on my page is: “The Sky is Not the Limit.” I am a creative person, but honestly, until I prepared the video for this class, I did not realize how creativity expands in every area of my life. I create curriculums, programs to enrich communications between families and children for educators and students. I am an and published 3 books. One of them is a series of 5 books. I have created 3 music albums and an app.
Personally, I love writing, both fiction, blogs, and poems. I love cooking and baking and hosting. I love flowers and decorating our table with our Shabbat corner with a blossoming feeling. I love working out and dancing, this is a somatic creative expression. I also love dressing up, not only on Halloween or Purim, the Jewish Holiday. Lastly, I love traveling the world. I usually find myself writing and coming up with new inspirations ideas.
The video is a small collection of my IG story from the last year. You are invited to watch [attached is video #1]
Creative Exploration Week 2:
I decided to share my Shabbat dinner (=Shabbat=Saturday). Shabbat is celebrated on Friday right before sunset. I start with lighting Shabbat candles (20 minutes before sunset) and choose the right intentions for the week with my rock words. I take the time to say my gratitude for the week that passed. I then invite all the people I love to surround me while “we” light the candles and set an intention for the upcoming week.
Shabbat dinner is always special. I host every other Shabbat at my home. It is time we not only eat but check in with each other in a deep way. We usually stay around the table until 9:30 pm-10 pm and enjoy the family games. It fills me with joy and unconditional love.
For me, cooking can be presented in a loving way. We usually have 3 courses, and we start with the traditional Moroccon Fish, then salads and meat mains (although I am pescatarian). And finally, a sweet dessert. I take time to decorate the table and add things from nature. Flowers, rocks, and leaves. In this particular Shabbat dinner, the salt spilled on the table. Magically, it was in the shape of a heart. My home has many sayings about LOVE in Hebrew Ahava, and when my daughter noticed it, we were all filled with extra light and love.

Creative Exploration week 3:
Halloween Breakable Chocolate hearts + Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Spook me with pleasant surprises,
but don’t, don’t scare me.
Break the chocolate to sweeten my days,
but don’t, don’t break my heart.
Creative Exploration week 4:
Passport Birthday Treasure Hunt
This past week, I found myself planning three events: my best friend’s birthday this coming weekend, Halloween costumes, and my birthday event. Taking this class, I realized these events encouraged my creative process. I find myself diving into the ocean of creative ideas and executing them. I like to think outside the box and bring elements of surprise, left brain, and right brain together. I also find that my creativity is usually catered to serve others, which is a new concept for me as I follow my process.
I will write about one of my creative processes.
My best friend’s birthday was last weekend. I wanted to surprise her with something unique and meaningful. She loves traveling. Before the Pandemic, she traveled the world. But then, during the Pandemic, she got pregnant with her first baby. She immediately compromised her traveling. I know how much she misses traveling. I decided to surprise her with a trip around the world. Well, almost.
I asked for each one of the participants to write a riddle about the place they traveled together, or a place they plan to travel together, or their place of origin. The riddle could not include the name of the location of the person. I then printed each riddle and glued it in a passport (passports I purchased from Amazon).
I planed a treasure hunt for my friend. First, she had to solve a logical problem to find the hidden spot where I hid the passport. Then, when she found the passport, she had to guess who is the person.
She loved it! She finally traveled the world again.
By the way: one of the locations:
“The place where the toughest, most sensitive women live!”
Can you guess?
Creative Exploration week 5:
Goal Digger for Halloween
This week’s creative expression is one that I love. As some of you may know, I am a ‘burner’ (a nickname for people who attend burning man). After my divorce 8 years ago, my desire to dance again was immense. I started a whole new life, creative, expressive, and filled with meaningful friends and exploration! Dancing freely again was one of my joys, and I found it again (I don’t like clubs, definitely not in LA). I was in burning man 3 times, and most of my friends are burners.
My creative process for this week was like a puzzle.
I did not know how my outfit would look in the end. I just thought of two things: Gold + comfort.
Every day I would collect one more thing: fabric, jacket, shoes, glasses, jewelry, bag, hairpiece, blue eye contacts, and other accessories.
The key to the costume was of course: the shovel which I sprayed in metallic gold.
On Saturday morning (the party you see in the video was on Sat night), I laid out everything and started putting it all together. One item after another.
I created two customs – for myself and for my partner.
We were very gold!
Then, I did my hair. I took extra time to do my makeup, playing with brushes, gold glitter eye shadows, and gold lipstick.
Then the temporary body tattoo.
I felt like a kid who is allowed to play, to express. No right, no wrong. Just me, letting it all out.
Creative Exploration week 7:
This week I played with food art for the first time in my life.
For my birthday I invited the helper of my friend to help me create this creation. She never showed up. I looked at the boxes filled with fresh fruit, dried fruit, cheese, nut and paused. I can create, there are no rules. “Well, maybe I could create it by myself.” I felt how I play and draw with good. Usually, they are made with cold meats as well, but since I keep kosher, I made it from cheese only.
It was so much fun! I had about six trays.
Eye eat before your belly!
Ps. the middle tray is vegan.
Pss. All gone after an hour.
The themes of growth: Please elaborate on each with APA and how it is each connected to creative expression, personal growth and intuition.
Elaborate on the words- inner growth, self-discovery or transformation emerged in the to creative explorations.
Heritage and Present – I am Jewish. I see how I bring heritage to my family and friends in a fun, creative and attractive ways. Most immediate thoughts about heritage is that it is old and not up to date, and I want to create an out of the box experience. Like my Shabbat dinner table is always decorative and beautiful. I believe that the eyes eat before the belly and that food is always memorable and impacting positively. Even if people are not in my dinner, watching this on social media creates memories. Heritage teaching and experience.
Serving Others – I see the theme of creating art not just for the ‘drawer’ but serving others. My art expression is usually a solution based in order to connect with others on a positive level – dinners, holidays, birthdays, festivals – all these are coming to entertain and to be at the level of engaging with others with a smile and love. I use my intuition to create love and support feelings, saying – I care about you. Even my Halloween custom was not only about me, but about my partner whom I made sure to create a costume for both. Creating creative experiences to bond with others.[supanova_question]
