Greetings LIS 7700

Greetings LIS 7700

You can find the syllabus through Kateway.

Please note that we will likely be meeting in CDC 20. You can expect an email from me closer to the start of class. I will provide coffee, juice and snacks for our first meeting, so don’t feel like you need to bring anything.

As I mentioned in the video, please read or listen to Getting Naked. Think about the importance of vulnerability in management and service. Also ponder other themes in the book and how they apply to LIS.

Please also read the Army Teams case study, chapters 1&2 in Bolman and Deal as well as the 3 articles mentioned in the syllabus.

Below you will find the list of context books. Remember that you don’t need to get started on this assignment before class starts. Should you decide to get a head start, please use the comments box below to make your book selection. Please only one person per title (first come, first serve).
