Organizations are people….
 
    - B-schools have tended to emphasize
        physical and financial resources
        and hard analytical skills

    - Clients of B-schools encounter students
        weak in the softer human skills

  Increasingly organizations require greater focus on
                "human systems management"

        Why?          Change
                            Competition
                            Globalization
                            Diversity

…. All require greater levels of human interaction
        to cope
                            Work teams
                            Task forces
                            Project teams

  …. This requires people who understand and are skilled
        at effective team behaviors

  Greater need for spontaneous "mutual adjustment"

                Some key skills:
                Communication
                Conflict management / negotiation
                Creative problem solving
                Ability to learn and critically think
                Understanding of / comfort with change
