IRW420H1: Management Skills for Project and Strategy Implementation



The course focuses on understanding the challenges, constraints, and opportunities associated with formulating and implementing organizational strategy, with a focus on developing practical tools and skills required to effectively “get things done” in organizations. Course begins by giving students a framework to analyze organizations from strategic, political and cultural lenses. Subsequently, the course addresses three main issues central to “getting things done” in organizations: 1. how to gain influence in organizations (topics: decision-making, power, and networks), 2. how to manage others (topics: performance management, motivation, negotiations), and 3. how to drive organization change (topics: organizational culture, organizational change).
