Organizations are changing so rapidly and in so many ways that it is crucial for managers to have this knowledge. Thus, the course readings are aimed at expanding awareness and knowledge of multiple issues associated with change. There will be guest speakers who regularly create change. There will also be cases and class activities aimed at skill building in ways that are related to students’ own organizational settings. Hopefully you will come away from class with more knowledge and more confidence in your own abilities with regard to organizational change.
