Dynamic economic, political, environmental, technological, and social forces provide constant incentives for firms to transform their systems, processes and business models to achieve and sustain competitive advantage. The focus of this case-based course is how global firms today respond to these forces and to competing pressures across multi-stakeholder relationships so as to engage key partners to build (or rebuild) organizational efficiency and effectiveness.
Also of importance are the personal skills managers need to perform effectively in these dynamic situations. These issues will be addressed through cases, class discussion, and team work. Active participation is expected, encouraged, and rewarded.
