BAM 532 Organizational Theory

3 Semester Units

Organizational Theory pertains to the idea that business is changing at break-neck speed, so managers must be increasingly active in reorganizing their firms to gain a competitive edge. This course will provide you with the most up-to-date and contemporary treatment of the way managers attempt to increase organizational effectiveness. This course will also focus on organizational theory, organizational design, and organizational change. The origins of organizational culture, stakeholder approach to organizations, and recent developments in organizational structure will also be covered.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Examine why organizations exist and the purposes they serve.
  • Assess the relationship between organizational theory and organizational design and change, and differentiate between organizational structure and culture.
  • Differentiate among the corporate-level strategies companies can use to enter new domains where they can continue to grow and create value.
  • Analyze the relationship among organizational change, redesign, and organizational effectiveness.
  • Examine the typical problems that arise as an organization grows and matures, and how an organization must change if it is to survive and prosper.
