This is a joint Managing at Yale and Best Practices project. The design team’s charter is to develop training for managers and to design any associated supporting structures that support managers’ ability to manage more effectively, confidently, knowledgeably, and consistently in the context of an organized workforce. The training should “fit” with the overall objectives and tone of the Managing at Yale initiatives. The final product should be approved by both the Managing at Yale Steering Committee and the Best Practices Initiative Steering Committee.
