Management 495 Strategic Management Fall, 2006 Course objectives Understand the meaning and significance of strategy and develop a strategic perspective for  viewing and managing all types of organizations. Acquire or improve your ability to integrate the concepts of various academic disciplines so  as to develop a total firm, strategic perspective in this, a senior, capstone course. Develop or improve your managerial skills:  being effective in oral and written  communication; assessing organizational performance so as to identify significant problems  and opportunities; creating relevant solutions to these problems and opportunities. Create a professional work environment in the classroom that encourages an ethic of  responsibility and quality in terms of individual and team performance. Educational philosophy The best learning environment involves a partnership where all of us make unique  contributions and joint decisions.  Student input will include the scheduling of presentations,  identifying typos, mistakes and oversights in the materials and schedule, suggesting ways  for making the learning experience more effective, choosing cases to be presented, and  contributing outside materials to discussions.  We are both ultimately responsible for what  gets learned.  The professor may adjust the course plan set forth in this syllabus to  accommodate learning needs and assure fairness.   Pedagogy and grading Class meetings are conducted in a business like, professional atmosphere, where each one of  us comes prepared to discuss, analyze, and learn how to apply course concepts.  Valuable  class time is not used for lecturing students on new information but for helping students  more fully understand and apply concepts they have acquired more efficiently by reading and  thinking about specific issues on their own beforehand.  This course is taught by the case  method of instruction, which emphasizes the development of critical thinking skills.  Strategic concepts, language and techniques come from the text ( Strategy:  Winning in the  Marketplace , 2 nd  Edition, Thompson, Gamble and Strickland).  Implementation of this  material is learned from written case analysis  and oral presentations .  Course grades will be  determined by one’s ranking among other students in point totals.
