This course will develop your skills to effectively manage people and projects. Information professionals work in a multitude of settings and our course will consider work in organizations from traditional information institutions to tech companies and beyond. Topics will be addressed from a case study perspective addressing the topics of planning, organizing, leading, controlling, staffing, communicating, and collaborating.
