Leadership for Organizational Transformation and Change
Individual and group behaviors are the central components of the study of behavior in organizations. Focus is on the managerial application of knowledge to issues such as motivation, group process, leadership, organizational design structure and others. Leadership for Organizational Transformation and Change begins with a study of theoretical models of change management and extends to tools and techniques to bridge between the academic and pragmatic aspects of change. To better prepare students to function successfully as change leaders, the emphasis will be on the human side of change: why change happens, how it happens and how to navigate through the complexities and resistances that change brings for individuals, teams, and organizations.

The focus will be on development and implementation of solutions that generate competitive advantages through sustainability and strategic planning.
