Excellence in Supervision and Management

The Excellence in Management Supervision Certificate Program offered by the Office of Human Resource Development (OHRD) is intended to support the professional development pathways of experienced managers and supervisors who aspire to outstanding skills development and competency in their supervisory work. Participants are requested to have taken Principles of Supervision and Management (PSM) prior to this program or a similar professional development program.

Taking place across the year, the small group learning environment weaves together six classroom sessions, an independent project, and a menu of elective courses. Using a highly interactive approach, participants will deepen their knowledge and practice of the role of personality, culture and work style in supervision, along with recruiting, hiring, retaining and developing high quality staff.

Like the other courses in the "Fully Prepared" series, EMSCP is offered at no charge, and all materials will be provided. Classes are usually held in 220 Ingraham unless changed by your instructor. Participants are expected to attend all sessions, however; a "make-up" process has been developed if you need to miss a single class. Please see the instructor should you anticipate such an absence.

The course is taught by Don Schutt (Director, Office of Human Resource Development) and Darrell Bazzell (Vice-Chancellor for Administration), with assistance from Tammy Starr of OHRD, who coordinates the Certificate program.

Principles of Supervision and Management

Principles of Supervision and Management consists of 11 half-day or 5 1/2 full day workshops. These are foundation workshops intended primarily for new managers and supervisors. Any managers or supervisors who are not represented by a bargaining unit are eligible for these workshops.

Participants who complete PSM 11 or PSM 5.5 will receive a certificate showing they have met the Wisconsin statute 230.046 requirement for management development training for supervisors.

The courses are limited to 30 persons.
