What is groupthink and how does it affect organizations?  In this course, students have the opportunity to answer such questions as they learn about behavior in organizations as influenced by individual differences, group processes and interactions, and organizational processes. They apply current theories and methods to case studies, proposals, and personal experiences on a variety of topics, including motivation, productivity, diversity, group development, team building, decision-making and communication processes, power and politics, leadership, job design, and organizational culture. Through this course, students work toward gaining the skills and abilities essential for effective management in changing organizational contexts.
