The programme in Organizational Behaviour / Strategic Management will include seminars on the following topics :
Organizations exist because they are a better means of allocating resources than a pure market system. Business entrepreneurs learned more than a century ago that it is preferable to hold resources in the form of a firm than it is to obtain them repeatedly from markets. Doing so allows for more control and predictability, and it gives entrepreneurs time to obtain returns on their investments. Holding resources in organizations allows entrepreneurs to take collective action, and over the years business empires have been built in railroads, steel, automobiles, banks, social media, and information search engines. Today, organizations are used in every sector because they are the most effective means of taking collective action.
You are asked to read all of the readings before coming to the seminar so that you are prepared to participate actively in the discussions. In addition, please skim through several issues of the Journal of Organization Design (www.jorgdesign.net) to see the various types of articles that have been published and the kinds of topics that are covered.
NOTE: Final readings and literature will be available one month before the seminar. The size of the afternoon group presentations will be adjusted to fit the number of participants.
This seminar gives the participant a thorough understanding of the concepts and theories in the field of organization design, including its theoretical foundation and future directions. Students will gain an understanding of the relationship between organization theory and organization design, with an emphasis on theories that have practical applications. Further, students will obtain a thorough understanding of the differences and similarities of traditional and modern organizational designs, particularly collaborative communities and the digital enterprise. The most recent development in the field, design thinking, will be examined using an experiential exercise.
Topics will be covered according to the following schedule:
Day 1 Theoretical Foundations and Future Direction
Day 2 Classic and Modern Organizational Designs
Day 3: Cooperation and Collaboration
Day 4 Design Process
The seminar is designed primarily for doctoral students, but post-docs and other early stage researcher may also benefit from attending. We assume students have a basic knowledge of organization theory obtained during their (Research ) Master studies or equivalent. Please let us know if you do not have this basic knowledge of organization theory, and we will provide you with a reading list to prepare for the seminar.
