MGMT 8035 - Complexity and Applied Systems Thinking


(5 cr.) Organizations are increasingly a reflection of the confluence of dynamic influences and pressures to compete in an uncertain environment. Leaders need to stimulate creative and innovative approaches to products, services, and operations. Yet, organizations also need to have predictable control systems to enable the efficient utilization of resources. This tension between chaos and order demands new approaches to structuring organizations and decision making. Using processes of systems thinking, mental modeling, and relational dynamics, students have the opportunity to analyze organizations and develop tools to better understand complex systems dynamics. (Prerequisite(s): MGMT 8025.)
