Change management


The objectives of this class are: to introduce students to approaches to change management in human organizations; to discuss basic human needs in order to better understand people's motivations;  to draw students’ attention to unconscious postures that may characterize leadership behaviors; to initiate students to the various roles that exist within a group;  to examine and understand the dynamics of groups working in teams; to explore different collective problem-solving processes;  to examine innovative models based on collective intelligence that make it possible to improve collective functioning.
