About the course

The course asks why some organizational forms are more popular at one point in time and place, and why some forms are more suitable under specific situations than others. In addition, it addresses classical and contemporary theories of organizational design, and focuses on practical applications of existing knowledge. Moreover it aims at critical reflection on how strategy, multiple stakeholder interests, and new emerging forms and/or fashions influence what we consider as proper organizational design.

The course begins by providing a comprehensive overview of what constitutes organizational design. Subsequently, it turns its focus to the historical account of different organizational design options and explores opportunities for complementary design solutions and their consequences.  In the concluding part, the course emphasizes on developing a holistic understanding of the embedded advantages and disadvantages of different design options. The course is given and examined in English.
