Inhoud vak

Culture as a sensemaking device can be studied in different contexts, on
different levels and from various perspectives. The issue what culture
is, how culture is created, and whether cultures can be deliberately
changed are subject of
fundamental debates in organization culture studies. Do (organization)
cultures have a shared, unchangeable and distinctive core? Or is
cultural change part of the ever-changing day-to-day life of
(organizational) members? The relations between culture, power,
identity, and agency are key to understanding the complexity and
dynamics of the
processes of (organizational) (culture) change and collaboration. In
this course students develop knowledge of and insight these culture
change
processes in a broad variety of international and organizational
contexts (profit, non-profit, government).
