Negotiating is a necessary skill and it is the core of the manager's job profile. People in the organization negotiate not only to win contracts or meet sales targets, but also to guide the organization in the face of change. Hence, it’s imperative for all the managers to understand the various types of conflict, handle conflict effectively, and develop strong negotiation skills.

FDP on Innovative methods in Teaching HRM & OB

Management education, over the last 10 years, has witnessed several challenges, arising out of the emerging complexities in business environment. Students need to be sensitized to the dynamics of managing interpersonal relationship at the workplace, which needs to be learnt by them, not only through concepts, but also, through experiential learning. Teaching subjects in the areas of Human Resource Management (HRM) and Organizational Behavior (OB), therefore, has become challenging and requires special skillsets. While it is necessary to appreciate and focus on the various conceptual and theoretical frameworks of HRM and OB in the classrooms, faculty members need to facilitate in the process of preparing the students (budding managers) to get ready to face managerial challenges. To do so, a pressing need is felt to develop and implement innovative methods in teaching subjects related to HRM and OB. To address the above, SDMIMD Mysore is organizing a two day Faculty Development Program on "Innovative methods in Teaching HRM and OB", on 3 and 4 April, 2014, at SDMIMD Mysore Campus.
