Prerequisites:




This course is designed with two goals in mind. First, the course examines the analytic framework and tools needed to analyze, manage, and lead the organization of the future. Features of the "new organization" are: flat, networked, flexible, diverse, and global. This form of organization is contrasted with its traditional predecessor, and forces are identified that help or hinder movement from the old to the new. Certain skills that the manager will need for the new organization are investigated and practiced (e.g., the ability to work in teams or the ability to negotiate in instances of conflict). Second, this course introduces students to system dynamics modeling for the analysis of policy and strategy in social systems. Students learn to visualize an organization in terms of the structures and policies that create dynamics and regulate performance. One credit is taken each semester for a total of 4 credits.
