Management Strategies

Businesses and organizations move through different operating states from infancy through maturity. They also experience different operating states on a shorter term basis. Whether or not an organization expands or contracts, endures or succumbs, is dependent upon the knowledge and ability to execute the correct management strategy for the correct operating state. This program addresses the stages of growth and decline and the appropriate strategies for each condition.

The program covers basic study skills, identification of the various operating conditions of an organization or any section of an organization and the steps that can be taken to improve the operating condition at any given time. It also covers how to measure the production of an organization or its parts, how to keep and graph statistics, and how to use statistics for management decision making.

A faculty-supervised Final Practical Application requires the student to analyze a business or professional practice, determine which production statistics it should be keeping, make graphs of these statistics, determine the correct sequence of steps that should be taking to improve the condition, and help the organization carry out these steps. This Final Practical Application may be done in the student’s own business or organization.

This program is recommended for business owners, professionals, executives, managers, office managers and supervisors who want to improve their management skills.
