Management, Enterprise, and Business
Social enterprises, schools, governments, and businesses all need to be managed; indeed “manager” is today's most common job, yet most managers would struggle to explain what management is. In this course we will review different types of organizations, their common functions, and what it means to manage them. In the class wWe will review the history and development of management theory, functions, roles, skills, organization, structure, and behavior. In the lab students will work in small groups to understand, articulate, and address management issues faced by a real enterprise. Students will learn practical management techniques and skills including problem solving, teamwork, and communications. Professor David Colander will be assisting with the class, giving occasional lectures, and connecting the class to broad liberal arts themes. 3 hrs. lect.
