Lecture 1 Hello everyone,   Welcome to Mod 4, Management of Organizations!  After every lecture, I will send you a quick summary  of points for you to remember and organize your thoughts about the day's topic.  What we talk about in  class is prime material for the exam--as is the written material in the textbook and reader that elaborate on  the topics discussed.  For example, I talked about a SWOT analysis in class today.  In addition to my  remarks today, you should also read the section in the textbook that describes SWOT analysis and  strategy formulation.  That's how you should direct your studies.  There will be material assigned that I  don't get to in class, and this latter material will play a lesser role in the mod exam.  So, armed with that  knowledge, you should recognize the importance of coming to class and listening carefully.  My email  summaries don't catch everything you will want to know.   I began today's lecture talking about the importance of managing people effectively.  I talked about the  importance of getting people the right people into the right jobs, doing the right things.  Performance is  what counts, or as I said today, "The bottom-line is Performance!"  Everything we talk about in the module  relates to getting the highest level performance possible from your employees.  I illustrated that by  showing you a short video clip from the documentary series, "Carrier."  You saw a smart part of life on an  aircraft carrier.  You might have noticed the scene when everyone on the ship walked together on the  deck in a line from one end of the ship to the other to pick up any debris (no matter how small) that was  on the deck.  When jet airplanes and other equipment travels on that deck, the debris can be kicked up  and land in engines, joints, etc., and destroy them.  When equipment is damaged or destroyed because of  debris, you can imagine that accidents happen, and at the speeds that aircraft and other equipment  function on the carrier, accidents can often be fatal.  So, it matters that everyone does their job identifying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
