Inhoud vak

This course provides students means for understanding organizational
change. Towards this end we will go through main theoretical
perspectives on organizational change. These perspectives share an aim
to understand and explain how organizations adapt to changing
environment through organizational change but they differ in key
assumptions concerning how to conceptualize and understand
organizational change.

We will learn about these different perspectives not only during
lectures but also by engaging in academic debates. During the tutorials
you will debate against each other with a goal to argue for and defend a
particular perspective. In addition to helping you to be able to explain
these theoretical perspectives, these debates will improve your
professional social skills related to how to create and hold a ground in
a discussion.
