Certificate of Completion, Socio-Economic Approach to Management (SEAM)

The Socio-Economic Approach to Management (SEAM) is an intervention designed to address both the human or social aspect of organizations, and the economic aspects.  SEAM began in 1973 in France and has been the most researched organizational change process in the world.  SEAM begins with the leaders of the organization, assessing what is not functioning well, and correcting these dysfunctions.  The interventions combine the diagnosis and correction process with the introduction of six management tools, assessment of hidden costs, and political and strategic aspects of the change process.  At the heart of SEAM is the dual emphasis: reduce hidden costs and develop the human potential of all employees.
