OCL - Organizational Culture for Strategic Leaders

This course explores the strategic and persistent effects of culture on mission performance. Students examine the ways in which leaders can employ this powerful influence to nurture organizational excellence or to stimulate changes in organizational behavior. They investigate organizational sciences for traditional and Information Age perspectives on organizational behavior, on frameworks for assessing organizational cultures, and on strategies to initiate and institutionalize strategic mission-oriented change. Cross-boundary, inter-agency, cross-generational, and global influences, issues, and challenges are examined from a cultural perspective.
