    Establishing the organization, sourcing for human capital, maintaining human capital, and developing human capital has been the major and an enriching journey through this course. We did not only learn how to look for the right person with the right skill for the right job, I equally learned that we need to put in place a fostering or enabling environment that will permit these skills to develop. Human capital is a million dollar resource, the organization will not just handle with left-handedness.
