JWI 520-People Management

Early on in your career, professional success depends on your innate talents, how you develop those talents, and your initial career decisions. But once you become a manager, your ability to select, develop, promote, and manage the right people become the most important determinant of success. In this course, students explore two general areas of people management: hiring and positioning the right players for organizational needs; and managing people once the players are in place. Specific topics include sourcing and integrating new talent, managing strategic talent inventory, working with HR and organized labor, performance evaluations, and reward systems.
