The variety of cultural norms coupled with technological innovation in modern organizational structures has proven to be a complex management issue. To be effective, managers must increasingly deal with ever more complex policy, regulatory and process-based influences. The effects of globalization, corporate mergers, outsourcing, and public sector “business transformation” initiatives have necessitated increased awareness of organizational change management perspectives, and have forced traditional management cultures to become obsolete. As a result, new organizational management and cultural paradigms have emerged to take advantage of the opportunities offered by our expanding global economy.
This course is designed as an indepth study. We will cover the following:
- The increasing cultural influences that dictate organizational effectiveness;
- Develop a modern managerial view that looks at competitive advantage in terms of organizational awareness, organizational learning, and technological innovation; and
- Study Globalization from a domestic as well as international point of view.
