Design and Functional Knowledge Organization 2 credits
Much of the new learning within this course will replicate contemporary knowledge organization practice and emphasize collaborative activities. One of the major transformations in organizational practice in the 1990s and the early 21st century is the emergence of knowledge organizations. All contemporary organizations, from businesses to service providers, from education to sports, are confronted with the need to compete, no longer on the basis of patents and technological advantage, but on the basis of their ability both to restructure and to redefine managerial and staff work around learning and the creation of new knowledge. 2 credits over 7.5 weeks.
