Course description

This 2-day course is the first of two courses on midlevel management covering the skills and techniques midlevel managers will need to provide leadership and direction for their departments. The first module focuses on identifying opportunities and/or problems. Topics include environmental scanning, paradigm shifts, and methods for reframing problems accurately. The second module deals with group problem-solving techniques. The third module explains the need to quantify, justify, and communicate decisions so they will be implemented effectively. Managing change will be discussed in the final module. Topics include people who resist change, overcoming that resistance, and monitoring and evaluating the change before, during, and after implementation.

Selection criteria

Individuals presently assigned to management positions who supervise first-line officers; and administrative officers responsible for significant staff functions within the organization and who report directly to top management. Individuals presently assigned to top-level management positions with limited opportunity for managerial development through formalized course work; and personnel who are upwardly mobile within their organizations and whose chiefs of department wish to prepare them for increased managerial responsibility.

Prerequisites

None.
