Program Overview

The new economy has changed the way we manage. Rigid hierarchies, formal reporting structures and hard-coded roles and responsibilities have given way to flat organizational structures, self-managing teams and self-directed career development.

Being a Better Manager covers the core skills of effective management, and is tailored specifically for startups and high-growth, early stage companies using the latest in technology, crowdsourcing, virtual teams and highly-iterative business strategy development and execution.

Based on the fundamentals of classic and proven management theory and practices, Being a Better Manager incorporates the latest in performance management, organizational development, team psychology and lean business practices to create a modern set of philosophies and techniques that are uniquely tailored to today’s business environment.
