PSPA 2020 - Complex Organizations♦


(5 cr.) Factors of the 21st century present workforce dilemmas and challenges that necessitate organizational leaders who can manage conflict and make decisions for stability and sustainability internally as well as for society. In this course, students examine how organizations lend to problem solving in the modern world, affecting the lives of individuals. They assess why some organizations perform well, while others rarely succeed. They also learn how the structure of an organization, its culture and climate, and its leadership contribute to its ability to accomplish its mission and goals. Additionally, students identify the main characteristics of organizations in the public and nonprofit sector. Through assignments designed to provide practical application of content, students employ course concepts to assess related topics, such as the impact of employee personality traits on an organization, strengths and limitations of teams, and conflict resolution in organizations.
