BSMT 120 Management Thought, Principles, and Practice
Management prophet Mary Parker Follett described management as “the art of getting things done through people.” Peter Drucker prescriptively describes management by noting “that the job of a manager is to give direction to their organizations, provide leadership, and decide on how to use organizational resources to accomplish goals.” Indeed, successful management is the attainment of organizational goals in an efficient and effective manner.
This course introduces students to the foundations of management and how they influence the success of organizations. The evolution of modern management is examined as students explore traditional and contemporary theories, current research on the behavior of individuals and groups in organizations, and the skills that effective managers rely on. Students who successfully complete this course will have an appreciation for the broad challenges that modern managers face and the orientation necessary to further explore individual management sub-processes that influence organizational outcomes.
