Course Description

To manage manufacturing organizations, and assure continual improvement in company products and processes, managers must understand, and be prepared to modify, how the firm operates in terms of structure, policies, reward systems, work and management processes, and core values. This requires considerable skill in (a) correctly distinguishing between the technical and managerial aspects of company performance and (b) developing strategic and tactical approaches that, when implemented, lead to necessary change. This course addresses these managerial issues. Emphasis is placed on designing the proper alignment between company goals, structure and external environment; developing managerial skills in communicating, and motivating; applying quality management strategies; and facilitating planned organizational change.
