GettingItDone® teaches students the essentials of management. The course is designed for soon-to-be MBA graduates who want to effectively implement their strategies when in leadership and management positions.
The “It” in GettingItDone® refers to a student’s vision. The course teaches methodologies and tools that will help students execute that vision and bring their dreams to fruition by using well-refined models and tools based on the works of Peter F. Drucker, Bill Reddin, and Roger L. Martin. The course is built around four integrative frameworks: strategy, organization alignment, managing for results, and continuous improvement.
In class, students will be responsible for completing both individual-based and team-based assignments. They will be asked to apply what they have learned to their current or future job situation. Furthermore, they will be a part of a team that will practice a business simulation where they will have the opportunity to practice effective management strategies.
The course faculty have vast experience in running and consulting to organizations based on tools they will teach in class. They will not only share this experience in class, but will also make themselves available for one-on-one coaching. The course also includes sessions with GettingItDone® practitioners who will come in and share their experiences with the class.
