GS 502 Overview
This course prepares students to analyze an organization’s effectiveness related to its ability to achieve its mission, as well as its readiness for improvement and innovation through four frames: cultural, structural, human resource, and political. Additionally, students will learn to integrate their frame analysis into an integrated systems view taking into account the natural phenomena of complexity, chaos and dissonance. How has organizational theory evolved into current systems perspectives? How can I analyze my organization to determine readiness for improvement and innovation? What are the implications of understanding my organization for organizational improvement and innovation? Prerequisite: GS 501.
