Organizations serve as the fundamental building blocks of society. Most people spend a considerable number of hours each week working in or relating to organizations. This course provides opportunities to learn about organizational structures and development, the dynamics of individual behavior within organizations, and how organizations foster and manage change. As organizations develop, participants at all levels of the organization learn new patterns of interaction and skills for facilitating change. Through case studies and discussion, students have the opportunity to build problem-solving and decision-making skills by applying organizational theory to a broad range of organizational types, settings, and challenges.
