My name is Professor John Francis and welcome to Principles of Management.
Management is the process of dealing with or controlling things or people. I look forward to discussing management in the workplace and how it impacts you, whether you are the employee or the manager. We will discuss strategies that companies use today to be successful. We also will formulate recommendations on how we believe companies can better manage and run their organizations.
