An integral part of effective management involves understanding and critically examining the goals, strategies, structure, technology and external environment of organizations. In addition, a manager also needs to be cognizant of the various processes that occur within organizations, such as conflict, politics, change, information-flow and control, and organizational culture. Such an understanding of the structural design and functioning of organizations is essential to improving and maintaining them. This course provides this understanding by introducing current theories as well as alternative perspectives and approaches to the management and design of organizations, and assessing their relevance and usefulness.
