Info 290A. Great at Work: Managing for Success
In this course, we will discuss theories that explain why some individuals and teams within companies accomplish great things and succeed, while others don't. The core theme is that work is "social," meaning that individuals and teams that accomplish great things navigate well the social context of work. This explanation complements or contradicts views that hold that individual smarts and luck explain success. It is an applied course, looking at practical steps to increase the odds of success.
