The objective of this course is to develop skills to analyze and address issues of firm performance and how managers affect it through strategy. As part of skill development, students learn strategic analysis tools, including models and frameworks to diagnose organizational issues and make recommendations to improve or sustain performance. Some of the work required for this course is independent and some will be performed in groups. Because top managers must typically coordinate and integrate their activities and strategies as part of a top management team, the ability to work in teams is a critical part of their work. Therefore, it is also a part of learning in this course.
Reader duties and responsibilities include:
Set up and weekly maintenance of Smartsite sites.
Assist with grading (Includes 6 homework assignments and a midterm exam.)

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder. As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels. I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
