Be231 Organization of the 21st Century 2 credits
The structure and function of the contemporary organization is evolving from a mid-20th century hierarchical model to a “flattened” organization which utilizes cross-functional teams and dramatically changes the role, competencies and skill sets for everyone within the organization. Initially, this course is designed to build a basic understanding of contemporary organizational structure and then begin to explore the new models for contemporary design and function. The second half of this two-credit course relies on extensive, group collaborative participation in the conduct of the course. 2 credits over 7.5 weeks.
