Educational Philosophy: Welcome to Principles of Supervision (MG271). As outlined by Rue and Byars, in Supervision: Key Link to Productivity, supervision is essential in the business world. The main goals of this course are to provide the student with an understanding of the principles of supervision with emphasis on applying those principles in case studies analysis and "real world" situations.
Together, we will learn the key principles used in supervision and the impact this has on a company. We will use readings, videos, lectures, case studies, self checks, and discussions as knowledge building tools.
