  • Who owns ideas? What is idea theft and how does it influence decision making and behavior in organizations? How does idea ownership, protection, and theft manifest in diverse contexts, such as the music industry, cannabis entrepreneurship, and independent invention? How do individuals protect their intellectual property, and what do they do when they have no legal support in that protection? In The Ownership, Protection, & Theft of Ideas, such questions are explored from both an academic and a practical perspective. The objectives of this course are for students to gain a multidisciplinary perspective on intellectual property; to think critically about how individuals, groups, and organizations conceptualize idea ownership and theft; and to generate insight into how the growth of the knowledge economy has changed the way individuals think about idea theft. Topics covered in this course include: the philosophy of idea ownership, intellectual property law (patents, copyright, and trademarks), unconscious idea theft, and idea theft in organizations. We will explore these topics within both conventional and contemporary contexts, like traditional organizations, independent invention, music, and the growing cannabis industry.

  • This is a course about power and influence. We will discuss how to map power and interest patterns in organizations, how to understand various groups’ interests and objectives, and how to operate effectively in organizational environments. Organizational actors differ in the power and resources that they bring to bear in order to advance their perspectives. Students will learn how to advance personal interests, even from positions of little structural advantage. This class will develop frameworks as well as a range of practical tools to address these goals. The course will take a macro approach to studying power and influence, focusing on organizational culture, politics, influence, and leadership. Students will learn how to build power from nothing, as well as how to become successful agents of lasting organizational change. We will draw from a wide range of material drawn from the business and public sector. Class preparation will range from watching classic movies to reading magazine articles to prepping case studies.

  • All organizations are fundamentally political. Players (people, organizational units) have different self-interests, perspectives, and objectives. Players also differ in the power or resources that they bring to bear in order to advance their perspectives. If you are to be effective, both with respect to the goals of an organization and with respect to your personal goals, you need to be able to map these differences, understand various groups’ interests and objective, and understand how to operate in an organizational environment. In addition to being able to think strategically, you also need a set of skills that can be summarized via the words “power, persuasion, and influence.” Building on the micro foundations of persuasion tactics, this course will expand students’ ability to successfully navigate the social and cultural organizational landscapes in order to be effective agents of change. We will draw from a wide range of material drawn from the business and public sector. Class preparation will range from watching classic movies to reading magazine articles to prepping case studies.

  • This course aims to help students improve their skills in two fundamental ways. One is knowledge-oriented: students learn frameworks and concepts for analyzing conflict. Students acquire terms and models for identifying the type of conflict that exists in a situation and the potential costs and benefits of different strategies and tactics. Based on this, students should be able to interpret situations, plan tactics, and recognize and react to their counterpart’s behavior. A second and complementary route to improving as a negotiator is practice-oriented: students complement their analytical tools with behavioral skills. Negotiation and conflict ultimately come down to behaviors—how a manager opens a potentially volatile conversation, how a mediator uncovers information, how a negotiator frames an offer or a concession. Practicing these behaviors, and understanding how other parties perceive and react to them, is essential to improving as a negotiator. The course provides continuing opportunities for hands-on practice and also provides feedback, discussion, and occasions for reflection. Through role-play exercises, lecture, reading, and discussion, the course begins with basic dynamics in negotiation and adds complexity in stages, including multiple issues, multiple parties, mediation, agents, and coalitions. Some exercises involve numerical analyses, others revolve around qualitative conflicts. By the end of the course, students should be able to comfortably and confidently approach most any conflict or negotiation: analyzing its nature, understanding their own objectives, and plotting an approach that will give them the best shot at achieving their goals.
