Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Students who are admitted to the Entrepreneurship and Business Design program are given prioritized placement in the course due to program requirements, including strong integration with the laboratory-based pedagogy. Any remaining spaces in the course are open for other eligible applicants, i.e. individuals that are generally eligible to attend elective courses at Chalmers in their fourth year (fourth grade).

Syfte

This experiental based learning course deals with organizational behavior and provides knowledge on how organizations - individuals, groups - act and communicate in their organizational context. The course aims at providing an understanding of basic human dynamics in organizations. As such the course provides an opportunity to investigate and experience the relevancy to management and administration of topics whose basis can be found in the applied behavioral and social sciences (psychology, sociology, political science, etc.). The course will explore the interactions between individuals and the systems in which they live and work. Individual and group levels of analysis are included in covering such topics as communication, motivation, group development and performance,  creativity,change, individual effectiveness & development, leadership, and inter-group behavior.

Innehåll

This course deals with organizational behavior and provides knowledge on how organizations - individuals, groups - act and communicate in their organizational context. The course aims at providing an understanding of basic human dynamics in organizations. As such the course provides an opportunity to investigate and experience the relevancy to management and administration of topics whose basis can be found in the applied behavioral and social sciences (psychology, sociology, political science, etc.). The course will explore the interactions between individuals and the systems in which they live and work. Individual and group levels of analysis are included in covering such topics as communication, motivation, group development and performance, work design, creativity, quality improvement, individual effectiveness & development, leadership, and inter-group behavior.

Organisation

The underlying assumption is that organizations are living, open systems and that learning is best acquired by multiple means. The focus of this course will be experiential, engaging the student actively in the learning process. In addition to conceptual inputs, the course will utilize structured and unstructured exercises, simulations, case analysis and student's presentations in order to:
a) provide you with the opportunity to actually experience the behavioral dynamics being studied; and
b) to provide situations wherein you can assess the relevance of the dynamics being studied.

Because much of the learning and work towards the achievement of course objectives will occur in the classroom, students must
1) attend class regularly,
2) be fully prepare for class and
3) contribute to the team and class discussions.

Seven full days are scheduled 8-17 and grade 5 and A is not available for students absent more than half a day.

Limitations and important information! Due to the experiential pedagogy the course can only accept maximum 36 students. The course consists of seven full day work shops and attendance at these is compulsory!

The course in Sp4 is first and foremost for Entrepreneurship and Business Design students, but in case of not having 36 course participants other students are welcome. There will be a waiting list at Studentcentrum Origo.
