Thanks for your post. I think shared services might be a bit of a sensitive one at the moment as it could be what happens to my team so might be too much of a hot potato!
Yours sounds a really good focused topic. Currently googling lots! Think I'm panicking as I don't know what to do and so can't see the wood for the trees. I've asked my managers but they haven't come up with anything just encouraged me to look at something I am interested in.
Hi EverybodyLoveswine, I work for a charitable trust - so voluntary sector but ex local authority. I did think about sickness/disability as my background is in disability but it is not too big an issue in my organisation.
The main issue is org change/restructuring so I am thinking of looking at promoting/maintaining either employee engagement or trust/commitment during change. I've only got to submit mu draft proposal so I've got time to change my mind yet!
Hi granerybeck, did you choose a topic? I am in exactly the same predicament, I am really struggling to choose a topic and have passed the deadline already for submitting a proposal. I have an extension due to my Dad passing away on the 23rd October but if I do not submit before Christmas I will not be able to complete this year and have to pay my Uni fees again.
Only thing I am think about is engagement during maternity leave and how or what effects women being motivated to climb the career ladder?? I am not sure if that is enough to do a MsC dissertation, unfortunately I have not had alot of support from the lecturers and have missed lots of lessons so really feel stressed about it all :-(
Thanks Singaporeswing, how did you narrow it down? Did you focus particularly on your organisation?
I feel so stressed about it I think once I have a working title I will be ok but don't know where to start with researching what is a good topic as I have been warned it is difficult if too big or too narrow a subject..
