MGMT 423 - Seminar in Public Management and Leadership

(2)
This upper-level seminar course examines the study and practice of managing and leading in the public sector. Special attention is given to the exploration of a diverse array of issues that influence the work of public managers from both the macro organization theory and micro organization behavior perspectives. Such topics include bureaucratic discretion, the performance and accountability paradox, employee motivation, intra-and interorganizational power dynamics, and human resource management and development, among others. Seminal and contemporary readings, along with topical case studies, are explored with an emphasis on theory application and problem solving at the local, state, and federal levels. Prerequisites: Junior standing and any 200-level or higher course in ECON, MGMT, POLS or SOC. See department chair.
