Course Description

PPOL 220
Organizational Efficacy

Designed for those planning to work with nonprofit or public-sector organizations, this course covers key factors in organizational performance in those sectors. Through case analyses and exercises, students learn to assess strategy, structure, culture, and operations, and become familiar with various management techniques, such as performance management, group decision-making, and dispute resolution. The aim throughout is to develop capacity for reflective practice rather than mechanical application of formulaic approaches to organizational challenges.
