MSOD 620A Practicum 3A: Trans-Organizational Systems (4)

A total systems approach to planned change is required to create optimal, lasting change. In this third project-oriented and international session, the course emphasizes the development of total system and network-oriented change strategies, the development and sustenance of alliance and trans-organizational collaborations, and the integration of intervention methods for structural, human systems, managerial, cultural, and technological changes. There is an explicit interest in applying organization development technologies to issues of social and environmental sustainability.
