|Language of instruction||English|
You will learn about different mechanisms that cause organisations to change. We also deal with the effects of change and the role that consultants can and cannot play in the change process.
This course aims at furthering students’ understanding of the development of organisations over time and how this development may or may not be influenced or even ‘managed'. The course consists of two parts. First, we look at change ‘from the outside in’. A broad overview is provided of the theoretical and empirical literature on the nature of organisational change and the processes involved. In the second part of the course, we take an "inside look" at the change process and study Organisational interventions by management consultants. We study the consultancy industry, learn to differentiate among types of consultants, and assess the challenges that consultants and clients face.
Next to participation and written exam, FACILITATION is also assessed. Tutorial groups (seminars) are the primary teaching methods.
