Business management This introduction to the basics is of great importance for your later work in the middle management level, because here you will learn how to plan, analyze and optimally design business processes, taking into account economic aspects, economic relationships and social interactions. The various methods of remuneration for constant operational optimization and effective organizational development form a further focus. You get the theoretical foundation for this with a comprehensive overview of cost type, cost center and cost unit time calculations as effective tools for corporate management. By carrying out the various calculation processes independently, you are already getting fit for professional practice. Use of methods of information, communication and planning One of your key competencies as an industrial foreman is to analyze projects and processes in detail and to be able to present them to third parties. The focus is on the corresponding planning techniques and the wide range of methods for obtaining and processing information for the appropriate recording, analysis and preparation of process data using modern IT systems. In this context, you will also deal with the correct evaluation of visualized data. But the presentation and communication of your results is also of central importance. Therefore, in addition to the selection of the appropriate presentation techniques, the question of how you can optimally illustrate information with the help of tables, diagrams and statistics that you have created yourself is on the timetable. Cooperation in the company A good management culture and functioning internal communication are decisive success factors for every company today. That is why it is so important for you as a manager to know the social and psychological interactions in teams and to know how you can contribute to efficient cooperation and a motivating working atmosphere. The focus is on the approaches and methods of modern leadership, effective means of communication and the principles of conflict management. Here we consider the different communication and leadership models and jointly examine aspects of group dynamics and the role of the individual in the team. More difficult topics such as reflecting on one's own leadership behavior or dealing constructively with criticism are also discussed. Consideration of scientific and technical principles How can the energy consumption in this production line be optimized?
