"There are five managerial roles; they are to set objectives, organize, motivate and communicate, measure, and develop people."
-Peter Drucker (1909-2005)

Course Outline/Calendar (Summary)

In general, the course will cover the topics and do the activities outlined in the common BUS 302 calendar. However, the days and times for specific topics and activities will vary depending on a range of factors, including how well the class is doing in specific areas. More information will be provided in class.

You will run and bring to class, but not turn in, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test. You will skip the "case preferences" assignment. Exercise #1 will be done in written form, not oral form. I score the oral presentations and oral challenges as group performance rather than individual performance. I tend not to give "second chance" oral presentations. I use some time in class for overall group evaluations and for personal group discussion. As indicated on the syllabus, this class will have a few "pop quizzes" as well.

There is no final exam in this course.

Note: Materials listed as (CSUN only) are restricted to CSUN students, faculty, and staff only. To access these restricted materials, CSUN stakeholders will need to enter their full CSUN email address and their CSUN password. There is a small chance this type of authentication may not work for some smartphones or tablets; in that case, simply use a laptop or desktop computer.
