TitleOrganizational Theory and Change


This course provides a multiple perspectives approach to theories of organization and change. Leadership requires individuals to discern and balance competing demands and tensions inherent in organizations. This course uses a selection of Gareth Morgan’s metaphors as lenses to think about different aspects of organization life. The metaphors are augmented by classic readings in organization theory. Students apply various theories to case studies in order to develop insights into leadership, organization and change. This course meets over four weekends and involves some online content.

Effective Spring 2016 - this course has been re-numbered to LEAD 650.
