MacGyvering: The Art of Being Resourceful in a CrisisCOURSE ID: MAGYV
DESCRIPTION

Angus MacGyver, the TV secret agent of the late 80s and early 90s, somehow always managed to extricate himself from crises using only his trusty Swiss Army Knife, duct tape, paper clips and his wits. “MacGyvering” involves applying the very useful approach of this mythical hero. In today’s “do-more-with-less” business environment, he is the model for the resourcefulness firms and clients often demand from CPAs. Taught by a Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School adjunct faculty member with more than 30 years of experience in communication, marketing and resourcefulness, this highly interactive course will utilize many creative exercises and give you the tools to be more resourceful in difficult situations.
