Timothy D. Blackburn, MBA, PE
Few careers (with the possible exception of sports) rely on the success of teams as much as engineering and architecture. All of us have experienced the problems that occur when teams donít perform well, or team members are dysfunctional.
This course reviews characteristics of successful teams, and how you can better build and lead them. These can be special project teams, or longer standing work teams. While the principles are applicable in any team environment, the course is written from an engineering perspective.
Would you like to know why some teams work well and others donít? Would you like to learn strategies that many have used to ensure success? Would you like to be better at managing difficult people and situations on teams? Then this is the course for you.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
