Strategic Communication for Technology Managers


Technology managers and innovators often need to present highly specialized information, and seek support for proposals from the audience that is not intimately familiar with the topic. Often times the message is lost because of the misfired (or nonexistent) communication strategies and/or lack of communication skills. This course will help technology managers inculcate clarity, confidence and credibility in their speaking, presentations and writing. Students of this course will sharpen their communication skills through assignments, discussions, and simulated activities, and will learn to design persuasive communication strategies to advocate ideas and proposals.
