Leadership in Organizations

This course provides students with the social science tools needed to solve organizational problems and influence the actions of individuals, groups and organizations. It prepares managers to understand how to best organize and motivate the human capital of the firm, manage social networks and alliances, and execute strategic change. This is accomplished through knowledge of competitive decision making, reward system design, team building, strategic negotiation, political dynamics, corporate culture and strategic organizational design. Law students will gain greater insight into organizations they work with, firms and organizations that they work in, and multidisciplinary teams that form for transactions, litigation, and other problem-solving. This class will meet on the Winter Quarter schedule, which means – for Spring Semester 2018 -- that it will begin during the same week as the Spring Semester but conclude before Spring Break. JDMBA students are not permitted to take this class at the law school, but must take it in their 2J year at Kellogg. Evaluation: Class participation, problem sets and projects, and final exam. Section 1 is for JD students only Section 2 is for LLM students only
