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 be ‘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 study organisational interventions by management consultants. We study the consultancy industry, learn to differentiate among types of management consultants, and assess the challenges that consultants and clients face.
