Course Description

This course aims to equip students with the skills to responsibly lead change in whatever community they operate. It focuses on the skills needed to advance a change agenda, taking the organization as its central analytical unit, and combining material from organizational behavior, leadership, human capital management, finance, project management, political theory, sociology, and anthropology, to propose a practical tool kit for public leaders. In the first part of the course, reliable frameworks are introduced and we do an in-class simulation. The second part is co-created with the participations with class time devoted to student-selected topics and practice applying course material. The course concludes by suggesting linkages to current developments in business, politics and society.
