Administrative Governance, Public Policy & Management for the Public Sector Course
This course translates management theory into effective management practice by examining what managers do and
how they do it. The course on Administrative Governance presents theories of management applicable to the public and private sectors and then reconciles these theories with current practice.
If you’re among the many people who are intimidated by the word “theory,” it might be helpful to know that the aim
of this course is simply to give you some tools with which to identify, contemplate, and solve managerial problems.
Your tool kit will be full when you finish this course to help you understand some of the things that are happening in
your organization and why. These tools will also enable you to give an organization a “tune-up” or carry out some
of the more common managerial “repairs.”
