This course focuses on the problems and challenges managers face in dealing with the organization as a whole and the interrelationships between organization groups. Specific issues and problems which are covered include: the relationship of the organization with the external environment; the influence of the organization’s strategies, size, and production technology on the organization’s design; and strategies for managing organizational processes such as conflict, culture, and change.
