Topics for this course include: 1) Organizational culture 2) Decision making 3) Creativity and innovation 4) Leading Change 5) Teams and Team leadership 6) Organizational Design The underlying purpose of this course is to enhance your understanding of how and why individuals and organizations function as they do, and to explore ways to respond effectively as a manager. Our learning processes will include study of some important and powerful theories of organizational behavior, case studies, group exercises, and an action paper. Students are expected to take a high level of responsibility for their own learning and that of others in the course.

MNO 6202 Syllabus, p. 2 _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _ II. COURSE REQUIREMENTS Presence and Participation (25% of final grade): The material presented in this course is best learned in an interactive environment with lively discussions and experience sharing. In order to achieve this environment and to meet the learning goals, ALL class members are expected to be fully prepared to participate in active discussion, debate, and deep thinking around the assigned case and readings. The focus will be on quality rather than quantity. Be curious, professional, and engaged. To provide support for an accurate assessment of participation, a contemporaneous record will be created for each class session. You are expected to bring written responses to the case questions. I may ask you to turn these written responses in if the quality of discussion indicates inadequate preparation. o Professionalism: There is no long list of do and don’t behaviors. All actions such as classroom interactions, completing course assignments, punctuality, technology use, etc., are guided by professional and ethical standards of personal conduct.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
