HEC Montreal Centre for Case Studies
If the HR function is to become a strategic partner within an organization, it must be able to measure the results of its activities and programs. But how? the case places students in the position of an external consultant who is manDated to identify and develop indicators that will be used to establish a balanced scorecard for the head of the Staffing and Workforce Planning Division of the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). This is a decision-making case, since it asks students to decide on the relevant indicators to be selected for the balanced scorecard. At the same time, it can also be regarded as an analytical case, in that the solutions/indicators must be based on an exhaustive analysis of the situation and information conveyed in the case and its appendices.
