About This Course:

As one course among many offered in our curriculum, How to Build High-Performance Teams has been designed specifically for the practicing manager and the future manager. It provides private, self-paced, individualized study; learning and self-evaluation through instructional programming; and communication between the student and our staff of instructors through assignments and final examination based on the case study as pioneered by Harvard University. Paralleling a business school course of study, our curriculum makes available a stable, inclusive, and continuing transmittal of practices and perspectives to those working managers who, on their own time and at their own pace, want to continue their education.
