Capacity diagnosis and capacity-building in civil society organizations

Presentation

The purpose of organizational development is to enable an existing organization to be more effective in meeting its objectives. Organizational development essentially focuses on role definition in the organization, leadership and culture, as well as efficient teamwork. Every project brings change and the people involved are generally affected by these changes. The aim of this class is therefore to provide students with tools for understanding  changes, which are inherent to all organisations (companies, associations, local authorities, etc.).
