This course deals with management thought and practice. You will be provided with some “how-tos” relating to various management imperatives, e.g. strategy development, motivating and managing individuals and teams, managing customers, operating efficiently and effectively and, managing yourself.
The course asks you to critically think about what management really means in your own day-to-day work. The intent is to provide you with the knowledge to be comfortable and confident in tackling real-life management challenges.
If you are a student, a first-time supervisor, a recently appointed project manager, a professional who manages more than yourself, or someone simply interested in the evolution of management then Making Sense of Management is for you.
