SWE441 Human Elements in Projects and Organizations
This course focuses on issues of productivity, quality of work, motivation, morale, communication, and coordination within computer science, software engineering, and business data processing projects and organizations. Communication and coordination among the layers of individuals, teams, projects, organizations, and business milieus are addressed. Emphasis can be placed on particular topics in the course, depending on the interests of the students, their sponsors, and the instructor. During each session, students will compile lists of action items for improving the topics covered. For students with work experience, their lists will reflect their experiences; students without work experience will prepare lists that reflect typical strengths, weaknesses, and best practices based on the presentations, readings, and experiences of their classmates and the instructor.
