Be the go-to person

As a manager, you run things—projects, teams, even entire organizations. You negotiate processes and personalities and get everyone working together toward a common goal. You’re also a communicator. For peers and direct reports, you’re the voice of the company, laying out goals and plans to achieve them. For senior management, you’re the voice of the employees, conveying everything from new ideas to simmering grievances that could affect the culture and profitability of the company. Those roles have many titles. You could be:

  • an account executive
  • an analyst
  • a consultant
  • a credit analyst
  • a district manager
  • an events coordinator
  • a human resource representative
  • a logistics analyst
  • a manufacturing supervisor
  • an operations manager
  • an organizational development manager
  • a program manager
  • a project director
  • a recruiter
  • a strategic analyst
  • a supply chain lead
  • a training specialist
  • a valuation analyst

Roll up your sleeves

Andrew Shao, BBA Management, is partnering with an engineer to refine the design and find the best manufacturer for the Desk Buddy. They're digging into testing the market in retail stores and making iterations based on customer feedback.

Once the final design is complete, he’ll cast the Desk Buddy out of aluminum, manufacture the product, and distribute it to retailers across the Midwest.
