Change is fundamental to all organizations. It can be planned or unplanned, proactive or reactive, and it can involve fundamental transformation or only incremental adjustments. This course examines organizational change from both a theoretical and practical perspective. To do so, the course pairs readings drawn from Sociology and Social Psychology with case studies and in-class exercises that put you inside real organizations and give you experience making decisions in the face of ambiguous and incomplete information. We focus first on the tensions that arise when establishing and changing the design and structure of an organization. Next, we consider change in organizational culture-the assumptions, norms, and practices shared by members or a group or organization. In the final module, we examine how individuals within organizations lead and manage change.
