This course will review sociological theory and research on common issues and problems that face organizations as they go from founding to established operations.  We begin by examining factors that affect people's decisions to found new organizations, then consider the choices in organization and job design that face entrepreneurs, the problems of exercising authority effectively, group dynamics that affect decision-making and coordination, and questions of different approaches to managing both cooperative and competitive relations with external audiences.  In concluding, we'll review issues involved in leadership succession and organizational change.  Course topics will be examined through readings, class discussion, cases and interactive exercises.
