Contenu du cours

Many of the achievements in our world would not have been possible without a sophisticated understanding of how to organize vast amounts of resources and the effort of many people in order to carry out complex tasks. Now more than ever, competitive advantage depends on a company’s ability to (re)organize its structure, processes, so as to effectively recognize and realize business opportunities. Managing this complexity requires an understanding of multiple contingent and interdependent factors. This course will provide students with the analytical tools needed to handle the complexity of organizational design in the face of an increasingly globalized and fast-changing business environment. The objective of this course is to provide an understanding on how better organizational choices can be made in complex and dynamic environment. It will provide participants with advanced tools to understand how organizations operate, how they can be designed to achieve their goals, and what are the processes and phenomena that affect their functioning. We will do this by combining a rigorous theoretical approach with the discussion of cases and exercises that will enable participants to gain a solid understanding of the complexity of modern organizations.
