  • Organizational Systems (ORBH 541)

    Organizational systems are ubiquitous, dynamic, complex, paradoxical human institutions, among several other things. Understanding how they work—and don't work—often exceeds our mental processes, metaphors, language, and science. But theory, like practice, is not a destination, it is a process. The purpose of this course is for you to enjoy becoming familiar with various approaches that are currently employed to understand organizational systems. I hope that our journey will open some doors, provide some insights and skills, and exercise creativity in integrating and extending our current repertoire of perspectives for organizing collective action.
