Thus all managers are challenged to simultaneously speed up the product creation process, reduce overhead, cut delivery costs, and improve quality. Regardless of the size and purpose of the organization and technology involved people are the common denominator when facing these challenges. Success or failure hinges on the ability to attract, develop, retain and motivate a diverse group of skilled individuals. The human factor drives everything. The purpose of this course is therefore to help present today and tomorrow?s managers with a better understanding to managing people at work. Cross-numbered in Social Sciences as SST333.
