As a supervisor or manager at UC Berkeley, your role has likely become more complicated due to budget cuts, staff reductions, and the uncertain times in which we all find ourselves. Yet the challenges and rewards of achieving results for the organization while supporting professional satisfaction for yourself and your team have never been greater.

Join us for two half-day sessions exploring techniques and approaches for successful management in our One IT world on campus.
