This course is part of the Management Department curriculum where the broad focus is on the reality of change. Our specific focus is on forming and transforming organizations. Topics include: varieties of organization structure and design, the challenges of organizational change, and understanding power and conflict in organizations. A recurring question in the course is "what is a `good' organization?"
