MBA 531 - Organizational Development

(3cr) This course focuses on human behavior in groups and the dynamics that groups produce as they work. Special attention will be directed at exploring the dynamics of planned systemic organizational change, recognizing that even the most carefully designed strategy for planned change can have unexpected contingencies during implementation. We will consider organizational dynamics from two different but interrelated perspectives. We will explore overt group dynamics as it occurs with our conscious awareness. We will also consider the covert component of group dynamics that impacts overt dynamics but occurs at an unconscious level of which we are unaware. Prerequisites: Graduate standing.
