This course provides the underpinnings of public/nonprofit management. This course covers the basic principle of Organizational Management, leadership, human aspects of organizations and organizational life, and the functions that managers must perform to be successful. The primary goal of the course is to provide students with the tools needed to perform more effectively as managers. The course begins with an individual focus (Organizational Behavior) that rapidly progresses to the higher social dimensions (group, organizational). The course also attends to Organizational Management with an emphasis on public/nonprofit practice. This course is intended to add to students' knowledge base of management theories and practices, and to develop skills through the application of knowledge to real life. By the end of the course, students will have a better understanding of themselves as managers, other players, and of the socio-technical systems of organizations and management.
