Organizational Theory is an integrated set of
practical methods used to diagnose and improve
organizations. This course enables practitioners to
conduct meaningful interventions and employ
effective structural change within work groups and
organizations. Several methods are employed in the
following content areas: strategy, culture,
structure, decision making, power, process, social,
environment, technology, size.
This course uses a skill-based approach represented by
launch, explore, and summarize. “Launch” includes
the traditional review of material to settle on
operational definitions. Relevant history is visited
and the foundation is laid to understand and use the
exercise or mental model. In the “explore” phase the
exercise, diagnostic tool, gap analysis, or mental
model is introduced. The participant, either
individually or in small groups, uses the concept
under direction. In the “summarize” phase the
participants reconvene to share analysis,
clarifications, and results. The cycle is repeated
with outside assignments that reinforce the mental
models and illustrate mastery of the material. Work
is written, evaluated, and discussed.
