DATA DRIVEN DECISION MAKING (LBS 0014): The Data Driven Decision Making badge signifies working knowledge of the key role that data play in improving business processes. Using statistical analysis, badge earners can demonstrate how to evaluate process changes and maintain and improve performance. Completers are equipped to understand, use, and analyze data to improve decision making.

EFFECTIVELY MANAGING CHANGE (LMD 0006): Change is an integral part of working in today’s organizations. Upsizing, downsizing, mergers, divestitures, reorganizations, and responses to economic and technical changes are commonplace. How we manage this change strongly influences our success as individuals and for the organizations in which we work. Learn how to focus on rebuilding commitment and productivity during times of change.

ENHANCING YOUR LEADERSHIP SKILLS (LMD 0007): Leaders exist in organizations because they are necessary to help focus individuals on organizational goals. Without leadership, individuals tend to go their own ways to satisfy their own needs. Explore what it takes to be an effective leader and how to use the appropriate leadership style to motivate others. Learn how to lead effectively in today’s ever-changing work environment.

WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP (LCE 0002): Explore leadership styles between men and women. There is a general agreement in research literature that women face more barriers to becoming leaders than men do, especially for leader roles that are male dominated. This class will analyze differences in styles of leadership and the consequences of women in society as we become leaders and advance to higher positions in organizational hierarchies.
