This course addresses itself to students who possess at least some interest in management theory since it will consist of the presentation of theoretical concepts and the discussion of practical cases. As far as its content is concerned, this course aims at exploring the different ways in which organizations learn from past experiences and change themselves accordingly. Since decisions on important organizational changes can be undertaken successfully only if the organizational members are willing and able to learn from prior experiences they need to overcome their (quite natural) resistance to change. Therefore several different approaches to organizational learning and change, as well as considerations concerning the management of employee issues during change processes will be discussed. However, these approaches differ considerably in addressing the subject of learning and knowledge which necessitates a clear distinction between these concepts. Also internationalization of companies leads to opportunities for and constraints of organizational learning. The course will therefore also discuss various approaches to the management of subsidiaries in different countries.
