Why? Principles of Management provides the building blocks to understand how organizations function and the techniques to address the challenges that managers face in directing them. You will explore how organizations function in different cultural environments. You will engage with topics in written, oral, visual and kinesthetic ways. We will investigate multiple levels of the organization: interaction between an organization and its environment,the internal workings of an organization as a whole, and the motivation and decisionmaking processes of individuals within organizations.6 Principles of Management constitutes the first course in management at the University of Puget Sound, and serves as one of five foundation courses that prepares students for more advanced coursework and organizational life.Program Goals and Course ObjectivesBUS305A&B: Principles of Management Syllabus – Spring 2021The School of Business and Leadership strives to provide you with a unique and innovative business education that prepares you for success as leaders in a complex, dynamic global environment.

I am committed to creating an inclusive learning environment. Please notify me if aspects of this course create barriers to your participation. I need your feedback to improve!4. You need to be present and prepared, both with the content and with the body/mind energy necessary. If you are not in class, you will find this course unnecessarily challenging. Please make every effort to be prepared for class andto be fully present. Tips for being present in live class:2BUS305A&B: Principles of Management Syllabus – Spring 2021a. We now have the privilege of being together. We need to wear masks properly and stay at least six feet apart to retain this privilege. Unfortunately, this means no eating or drinking in class. Please wake up a bit earlier and have breakfast before class: It truly does help you think. We will have a short break about halfway through class: Stand up. Move. Go outside. You can eat and drink outside if you wish.b. Hopefully you are not going to be tempted by your electronic devices in class (haven’t we maxed out on our devices?). You are encouraged to take notes in whatever form is most useful to you. However, due to the distraction potential of electronic devices to both you and your classmates, if you use an electronic device in class, you will be expected to demonstrate that you are using it for legitimate class purposes. If you are using it to surf the web, check your e-mail, etc., you will be asked to turn it off and to not use your device in class in thefuture. Please turn your phone off before entering the classroom. Really. If it is on, you will be tempted to check/text—and that will not lead to a good outcome. If there is a legitimate need for you to be available via phone, please talk to me before class starts. You can check your phone during our break if needed.Tips for being present in a virtual classroom:a. Arrive to our conversation space a few minutes early to ensure that your internet connection, camera and microphone are working. If you do not have technology with these basics, please discuss your
