SOC 107 - (BH) Organizational Structure and Process

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
Most people spend the majority of their active lives in the context of some organizational setting. Organizations are such a dominant component of contemporary life that we take their presence for granted. At the same time, most people have only a vague understanding of organizational relations. This course focuses on the nature of organizations and the social, economic, technological, and political factors that shape them. Topics include the relationships among organizational size, technology and structure; power within and between organizations; the politics of decision-making and leadership; the impact of environmental factors; and organizational goals and effectiveness.
