Principles of Management

Our present management thought and practice reflects historical times and societal conditions – from the building of Egyptian pyramids to the management practices in Venice during the Renaissance; from Adam Smith’s writings on the division of labor and the application of management techniques to production processes in the Industrial Revolution. Today’s managers can benefit from understanding management as a methodology for organizing work. Certain management concepts and practices support the workings of any kind of organization – regardless of size, type or location.

The purpose of this course is to assist students in understanding how management theory contributes to current management processes and practices. Topics include: the Historical Foundations of Management and Critical Aspects of the Management Process; Organizational Culture; Decision Making; Strategic Planning; Structure; Managing Human Resources; Operations Management; Change; Social Responsibility; and Global Concerns.
