Course Objective To examine the evolution of the modern organization, focusing on changing approaches to corporate strategy and to managing employees with historical and sociological point of view .
Course Content This course examines the evolution of the modern organization, focusing on changing approaches to corporate strategy and to managing employees. We read both social scientific analyses and
cases, to trace the history of management, from the harsh principles to the latest theories of how “work teams” improve productivity and how focusing on a firm’s “core competence” improves the bottom line. We will study social science perspectives that question the efficiency of current organizational practices.

By the end of this course, the sudents are expected to demonstrate a command of :
- Competing theoretical approaches to organizations
- Competing methodological approaches to the study of organization
- An appreciation for the possibilities and difficulties inherent in the study of organizations
