The management principles we’ve learned are a lot like tools in a toolbox—every management challenge will require a different set of tools to resolve. Tom has asked for your input on “tools” that he should consider adding to his toolbox.
Based on your understanding of Tom’s experience and operating environment, identify and describe the benefit of ONE of the concepts or business practices you think would be of value and how you think it will contribute to his development manager and/or business success.
Posts 2 and 3: Respond to Classmates’ Posts
After you have created your initial post, look over the discussion posts of your classmates and give at least two thoughtful responses to two different classmates (one per classmate).
A response posting should be a minimum of one short paragraph. Word totals for these posts should be in the 75–100-word range. Whether you agree or disagree, explain why with supporting evidence and concepts from the readings or a related experience. Include a reference, link, or citation when appropriate. The goal of your response posts is to extend discussions already taking place or pose new possibilities or opinions not previously voiced. Your goal should be to motivate the group discussion and present a creative approach to the topic.
