Description:

Competency Area: Systems & Strategic Thinking

This course presents multiple perspectives of organizational systems and the influence these various theories have on our understanding of human behavior, leadership, organizational effectiveness and sustainability. The interdisciplinary models and theories used in the course will provide a framework to broaden our knowledge and skills in understanding the complexities of organizational life. Among the key perspectives we will consider are how structure, human systems, power, influence and, culture all shape the nature of the organization. Students should check the course conference on FirstClass for on-line assignments that may begin prior to the first class meeting.
