"To Learn, To Teach, To
Observe, and To Do." The student should be
a Critical Thinker, Effective Communicator, Proactive
Educator, and Moral Practitioner.
Class time will include lecture,
business case short videos and class discussion, and also supervision
and help on your team assignments. For the most part, Mondays
will be lecture days, and Wednesdays will be team days. On team
days, we will apply the concepts covered in the lectures to either your
Project or to external business cases or operations management model
sample problems. Your team will be required to answer specific
questions given the In-Class Assignments, or in the Project Milestones
during class. Usually, these are due at the end of class, but I
may extend the time to allow teams to complete an assignment before the
next class meeting. This type of class flipping
has proven especially helpful for teamwork (to ensure
participation of all team members), and also for project work, where
immediate help can correct the trajectory of your project early in the
will form teams to study a real company's management and operations.
As we progress through the course, teams are required to apply the
concepts and models that we learn to the company that the team has
selected. This is achieved through Project Milestones, which are
assignments that provide questions or instruct you with specific tasks in
order to apply these concepts to your company. Project Milestones
are due as listed on the Course Schedule. At the end of the
semester, teams will present their projects to the class and also
summarize their findings and recommendations in a report. The final
project presentation and report are in lieu of a final exam.

Any student, who, because
of a disability, may require some special arrangements in order to meet
course requirements should contact the instructor as soon as possible to
make necessary accommodations and share appropriate documentation from
the Office of Special Services, provided by HTC’s Disabilities
Officer, Dr. Richard Aronoff.
Accommodations will be
made, but instructors must be aware of your needs in order to make

Students who have not
satisfactorily completed 50% of class assignments are not allowed to
receive an incomplete grade. Students who do not have a grade of “C”
or above average are not allowed an incomplete. Students must request an
incomplete prior to the week of finals. The instructor may refuse an
incomplete request. It is the student’s responsibility to request an
Incomplete Form from the school office, have the form signed by the
instructor, Dean, themselves, and return it to the instructor prior to
the final. If the student fails to return the completed form to you when
grades are due, the student is to receive the grade they would have
received if they had not requested an incomplete. Instructors will
define the amount of time allowed to complete the missing work, however,
the time allowed cannot exceed 12 weeks after the end of the semester in
which the incomplete was requested. If the student fails to remove the
incomplete within 12 weeks, the grade will be recorded as an “IF,”
meaning failure due to an incomplete. An “IF” will be counted as an
“F” in the student’s GPA and will be part of the student’s
