Abstract

In addition to the basic conceptual skills modern manager must be able to assess the need for resources and plan their use in solving problems in professional activities, to work with information: to find, evaluate and use information from various sources necessary to solve scientific and professional problems (including the basis of system approach), to participate in the development of human management strategy of organizations, plan and perform activities aimed for its implementation, to choose mathematical models of organizational systems, to analyze their adequacy, to adapt models to specific management task. Course consists of 2 modules.
