General course Description:
Management analysts agree that the success of firm's strategy almost always depends on the design of its organization. This course explores issues concerned with designing and changing organizations for strategic advantage. It provides a framework that emphasizes three key elements of an organization: formal architecture, culture, and social networks. Core aspects of each element are scrutinized (as well as their interplay) to assess how they relate to particular firm strategies, and how they shape organizational performance and change in contexts ranging from high-technology to consumer retailing. The course also examines how the three elements create an organization's identity and its consequences for strategic advantage. Students who have taken OB 266 or OB 366 cannot take OB 566.
Course Style: A Substantive course teaches the law, theory, and policy in a particular area of law
