MMPP 5111 - Leadership and Organizational Change


(5 cr.) Successful public sector organizations require high-caliber leaders who are accountable to multiple constituencies. A rapidly accelerating rate of change and blurring of organizational boundaries contribute to the need for leaders who are equipped to meet the challenge. This course explores the theoretical underpinnings of leadership and the important role of the leader in organizational change. By exploring leadership theory, current research, and practice within an area of public administration or nonprofit/nongovernmental organizations, students will demonstrate their understanding leadership in organizations that are increasingly complex in nature. Ethical dimensions, boundary spanning functions, and how leaders influence positive social change are key factors of this course. The course draws on historical and current events, and the personal experiences of students, to examine the demands of leadership.
