Managing Knowledge Workers - COURSE DESCRIPTION
BMBA 9319/BMGT 9320: Managing Knowledge Workers covers the emergence and management of a new powerful breed of organizations—knowledge organizations—that thrive on knowledge and human creativity. The course will cover in-depth understanding of these organizations and will adapt, and update available management principles and techniques and will select and identify new and organization-specific practices that are suitable to managing employees who possess special cutting-edge knowledge and the ability to transform it into contemporary marketable goods and services. Managing Knowledge Workers will also cover psychological and sociological needs of these employees, in particular those belonging to Generations X and Y. With the help of assessment instruments, the course will cover how to identify and design knowledge organizations for their efficient working since they cannot be managed in the traditional ways.
