Goal: The goal of this course is to provide students knowledge, sensitivity, skills and awareness of value issues to increase their ability to survive, thrive and institute change in complex organizations.

Objectives: Over the course of this semester students should develop the ability to:

  1. identify and define primary concepts associated with organizational theory,
  2. apply abstract concepts to discussions of real organizational situations,
  3. use learning in order to assist our classroom organization in completing an agreed upon semester-long project,
  4. use computer technology to participate in our classroom organization.
