FOOD FOR THOUGHTThe main application exercise of UP ISSI’s flagship program Manager’s Course is the conduct of the Integrated Organizational Survey and Assessment (IOSA), which was formerly called the Integrated Plant Survey.

Besides being a practicum exercise where participants apply their knowledge about management, IOSA also has an extension or consultancy component.  Guided by their coaches, the participants integrate their recommendations to the assigned firm in an IOSA report, a copy of which is sent to the owner or manager for their immediate implementation.
