Course Description

Welcome to the ‘Evolution of Management Theory’ video lesson meant to elucidate the history of the field of management training and how we think about the purpose of manager in general. This lesson is the first of four in the ‘Management Basics’ video course meant to lay the foundation for understanding what it means to be and succeed as a manager in any organization. There have been four significant movements in management over the last century or so, from a focus on science to a focus on people. All three of these movements play an integral role in how we conceive modern management.
