Economics can be thought of as the study and understanding of the contexts in which an enterprise operates. A stable, safe and predictable environment where we are able to confidently forecast a future is critical for companies to flourish. This is the realm of economic policy. The Study of economics provides us an analytical sense so we can explain what is going on and make rational predictions about the near future. Economics can be separated into three fields: Macro, Micro, and managerial, each with different emphasis and focus. We will explore all three.

Leadership is the art of accomplishing more than the science of management says is possible. The manager asks how and when; the leader asks what and why. The manager operates within the status quo; the leader challenges it. The manager has his eyes on the bottom line; the leader has his eyes on the horizon. These sayings describe the symbiotic relationship between management and leadership. A healthy organization needs both. Leadership is vision. Management is implementation. They are the yin and yang of business.

Pull everything we learned together. In this capstone course we will synthesize the various disciplines we have studied into a conceptual picture of how they work together in a functioning enterprise. This will give us insight into the thinking that takes place in the C level suite among the CEO, CFO, COO and the Board of Directors of a corporation. Orchestrating all these elements into a plan is the realm of Strategy. Strategic thinking can be broken into long term planning (5 year plan), short term tactical planning and budgeting for the coming year. We will address such issues as: How are you planning to grow your business and deal with competitors and alternative products? The challenges arise in how to keep planning as part of an organic, continual process and how to implement strategy and mange strategic momentum. It is so easy to get complacent and start to drift or lose focus and become diluted in your efforts by chasing too many goals. We will discuss focus, discipline and mindset as we bring it all together.

This course is to gain the essential knowledge, skills and abilities for achieving successful change and transition in individual careers and organizations in this ever increasing frequency and complex environment. The ability to manage change and transition successfully to new ways is emerging as one of the most important skill areas to master. Effective managing of change and the transition is required for survival and success but the historic failure rate for implementing change is 70% or many times greater. The major cause of this failure rate is the lack of effective and efficient planning. Planning is the critical missing link that prevents successful transitioning to the desire change. This course will provide the opportunity to participate in an eye opener "see, learn and do " process that will adequately prepare participants to attain the degree of competence to manage an imposed or elected change from initiation to completion.
