Course Description This course has two overall goals. The first is to increase your effectiveness in understanding and managing individuals and teams in health care organizations. The course’s second goal is to prepare you to effectively design organizations. Effective managers not only must lead individuals and teams: they also must ensure that their organizations are well-designed to deliver the results that their strategies promise. This entails developing knowledge and skills to analyze key issues in organizational structure, power and politics, culture, and change.

The course combines conceptual and experiential approaches. We draw on several sources of knowledge to accomplish course objectives: (1) conceptual frameworks and research findings from the social sciences; (2) case studies; (3) roles plays, videos and exercises; and (4) your own work and personal experiences. The class will be highly interactive, and active participation in discussions is expected.

The course selectively surveys ideas and frameworks from the social sciences and explores their implications for leadership and managerial practice.
