 Course description  Modern managers confront an enduring set of dilemmas, problems, and issues day-in and day-out in all organizations. How do you keep communication lines open? How do you reconcile the interests and needs of constituents and clients and the professional discretion of staff? How do you coordinate and stabilize the work of the organization and open responsibilities for individual initiative and ongoing organizational learning?
