Notes: Management is both a skill and an art. Organizations are complex systems–varying in size, industry contraints, and structure–and so are the problems that managers face. This course will provide you with tools to diagnose and slove organiztional problems and to influence the actions of individuals , groups, and organizations. Specifically, this course is designed to provide a practical quide to managing behaviour–your own, and that of your co workers–in organizations. Wedraw on social science theory to identify the key human tendencies that can pose obstacles to career achievement even for the most talented and technically competent individuals. Topics include the challenges of making decisions effectively, motivating others to implement your vision, influencing those who resist your ideas, managing your own authority, and key concepts in organizational design. We will explore these issues using readings, organizational examples, lectures,discussions, and in-class exercises.
