Organization, Strategy and Innovation (Vorlesung)

Dozent/in: Markus Reihlen, Sarah Stanske, Ursula Weisenfeld

Termin:
wöchentlich | Montag | 16:15 - 19:45 | 16.10.2023 - 04.12.2023 | C HS 1

Inhalt: COURSE DESCRIPTION Managing organizations in today’s competitive and societal environment is complex and challenging. Think about the newspaper industry, which is undergoing one of its most fundamental changes triggered by the rise of digital technology. Firms are seeking salvation in a declining industry by creating new business models and defensive cost cutting strategies. The key issue we address in this course is how managers orchestrate the interplay between strategy, organization, and innovation for navigating their organizations through complex economic, cultural, political, and ecological demands. This course is built upon the premise that students of management should learn to combine state of the art scientific knowledge with practical applications and reflections. Instead of regarding the student as a passive memorizer of predefined knowledge, participants will reflect upon theories and become active inquirers themselves. COURSE STRUCTURE We will use a flexible teaching style mixing lectures, case discussions, and multimedia presentations whenever appropriate. It is imperative for you as a student to have read the required book chapters, articles, and cases before coming to class. Class discussion will be used to explore theoretical as well as practical business implications from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Inhalt: This course provides you with insights into how to do more engaging and useful research. So what can philosophy contribute to social science? The answer is straightforward: it helps to construct more interesting research problems by challenging taken-for-granted assumptions. The philosophy of social science raises fundamental questions relevant to the practicing researcher, such as what is the nature of social phenomena? Should we see organizations as accumulations of autonomous individuals, collective actors with goals of their own, or systems embedded into society? What is the appropriate form of investigation? Should we rely on empirical facts, on our reason, on action, or on intuition? Can we investigate society by studying individuals or via their social structures? What values and norms of social actions are appropriate? Should we see the individual's freedom (maximization of individual benefit) or his/her responsibility to the community at large (maximization of collective benefit) as the primary goal of social action? This course blends specific perspectives from the philosophy of social science with controversies in social studies. Our use of the term social studies is broad; it includes all disciplines that study social systems of different kinds and of different levels such as economics, sociology, political science, culturology, social psychology, and the respective socio-technologies such as management. This course will enable students to explain how philosophy could contribute to the improvement and interestingness of social research. More specifically, students will be made familiar with general philosophical controversies in social science such as individualism versus holism, idealism versus materialism, the positivism versus postmodernism debates. Finally, we address the relation between science and praxis and reflect upon the different statuses of science and technology.

Management (Vorlesung)

wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 08:15 - 09:45 | 16.10.2023 - 08.12.2023 | C HS 2
Einzeltermin | Do, 15.02.2024, 10:15 - Do, 15.02.2024, 11:45 | C HS 2 | Schriftlicher Test

Inhalt: Much of our professional and private life today is shaped by management and organizations. Management matters to all of us. We have to manage ourselves, manage others in student working groups, and after graduation, manage within firms. This course will take you on a trip through some main roads, a few backstreets, and several exciting places to explore management thinking and practice. Mary Parker Follett once stated: “Management is the art of getting things done through people.” We do so by infusing organizations with a purpose, developing strategies to anticipate the future, organizing people’s work, making organizational decisions, managing digital technology, shaping daily routine operations, and, among other things, facilitating innovation. Throughout these topics, you will learn to combine state-of-the-art scientific knowledge with practical applications and reflections.
