MGT 549 MANAGING STRATEGIC RENEWAL AND CHANGE

This course subsumes traditional theories of organizational development and change within the strategic management process. In doing so, it makes the case that creation of organization-wide systems designed to increase inclusion in the strategic management process may bring about learning, adaptations, strategic renewal of the organization, and indirect change better than traditional interventions by managers and consultants for direct change. The course reviews the current literature relevant to strategic renewal, draws upon the approach presented in the previous courses of the track, and both includes and critiques the insights of the traditional organizational development and change literature. Professors will guide students through a living case study that will propose the broad redesign of an organization's strategic management process, including its management and information systems, so that its structures will be aligned with its strategic management process.
