Resourceful Leadership (E M 596, new Spring 2018)

Resourceful Leadership: An Introduction pushes students beyond the conventional boundaries of engineering and scientific inquiry: team problem solving, critical thinking, engagement with others, personal and team development. Students will engage interactively: exploring case studies derived from contemporary business practice, developing techniques and practical capabilities, discussing and critiquing real-world exercises and demonstrations. These skills are critical to success, advancement, and professional satisfaction. The exercises, examples and cases will develop your portfolio of professional skills.
