INTRODUCTION AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES

This course involves the management challenge of designing organizational structure to facilitate
effective performance and achieve competitive advantage given the evolving nature of organizational
environments. Issues will include organizational innovation and change; technological change and
organizational restructuring; global competition; organizational culture; employee involvement,
participative management, and team systems; total quality management; and organizational
control, communication, and conflict. Particular attention will be devoted to the implications of
information technology and e-business for the structure and design of the 21st century
organization.

Following completion of this course, students should be able to:

      Describe the relationship between organizational theory and organizational design and
       change, and differentiate between organizational structure and culture
      Describe the agency problem that exists in all authority relationships and the various
       mechanisms, such as the board of directors and stock options, which can be used to help
       control illegal and unethical managerial behavior
      Describe how and why an organization seeks to adapt to and control the forces in their
       environment so as to reduce uncertainty
      Describe the basic organizational design challenges confronting managers
      Discuss the issues involved in designing a hierarchy to coordinate and motivate
       organizational behavior most effectively
      Explain why most organizations initially have a functional structure and why, over time,
       problems arise that require a change to a more complex structure
      Understand how an organization‘s culture, like its structure, can be designed or managed
      Appreciate the importance of linking strategy to structure and culture at the functional-,
       business-, and corporate level to increase the ability to create value
      Understand how technology needs to be matched to organizational structure if an
       organization is to be effective
      Understand the relationship among organizational change, redesign, and organizational
       effectiveness
      Describe the typical problems that arise as an organization grows and matures, and how an
       organization must change if it is to survive and prosper
      Explain how organizations can use knowledge management and information technology to
       promote organizational learning to improve the quality of decision making
      Understand the steps involved in creating an organizational setting that fosters innovation
       and creativity
      Appreciate the importance of managing an organization‘s power structure to overcome
                                                1
       organizational inertia, and to bring about the type of change that promotes performance

College of Business Skill Development

As a part of the College‘s strategic planning process, learning goals/educational objectives have
been identified (see http://www.usi.edu/business/strategic/learning.asp). This course will help to
develop students‘ critical thinking skills, oral and written communication skills, ethical decision-
making skills, and analytical problem-solving skills.

Note: MNGT 305, Principles of Management, is the prerequisite for this course; MNGT 315,
Organizational Behavior, is recommended as well (but not required).

READINGS

Students should obtain the following book:

       Jones, Gareth R. Organizational Theory, Design, and Change, 5e (Prentice-Hall, 2007).

Copies of the text should be available for purchase in the Bookstore. Students are also expected
to subscribe to the Wall Street Journal; subscription forms will be available from the instructor.
Any other assigned readings will be available from the instructor‘s website or the Rice Library
online databases. Supplements to the course outline and reading assignments may be distributed
during the session.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS, METHODS OF EVALUATION, AND RESPONSIBILITIES

In addition to the required reading assignments, there will be four exams, several individual and
group case assignments, and an organizational analysis and written case study. Given that the
case assignments are primarily for the purpose of class discussion, any that are turned in late will
be penalized by 50% (and any late assignments must be submitted no later than one week
following the original due date). The group case assignments will be primarily (although not
necessarily exclusively) in-class assignments; any in-class assignment missed by a student due to
absence must be submitted within one week.

Grading will be determined on the basis of the following weights:

       Exams (4 @ 15% each)                              60%
       Organizational analysis                           20%
       Group case assignments
         and supplemental reading briefings              10%
       Individual case assignments, supplemental reading
         briefings, and class participation              10%

Regular attendance is recommended, as the required readings and class meetings are intended to
be complements, not substitutes. The required reading is the foundation for the course; the class
meetings and cases will build on that foundation. On the exams, students will be responsible for
both material covered by the readings and material discussed in class. Students are expected to
keep up with the required reading, as assigned, and to come to class prepared for discussion and
with any questions concerning the reading. Students are reminded that under the credit hour
system a three-credit class requires on average six hours of outside preparation per week. While
research indicates that the average U.S. college student spends less time in outside study and
class preparation than the instructor might expect, when full-time students devote only part-time
effort to their coursework, less-than-desired outcomes may well result.

                                                 2
Students often observe that they would like their classes to ―better relate to the real world.‖ For
students to apply what they have learned in the classroom to actual work environments students
have responsibility for active, rather than passive, involvement in the learning process. The
instructor‘s role in active or experiential learning is to serve as a facilitator of student-directed
learning, rather than being the provider of teacher-directed instruction. Some have called this a
shift from ―teaching by talking‖ toward ―learning by doing.‖ The responsibility for learning is borne
by the learner, while the teacher makes resources available and helps the learning process. This
instructor‘s primary objective with respect to this course is that students will acquire knowledge,
skills, and abilities that will make them more competitive in the job market and more effective
members of the organizations they join upon graduation.

As one college president has put it, ―[I]t isn't enough just to learn -- one must learn how to learn,
how to learn without classrooms, without teachers, without textbooks. Learn, in short, how to
think and analyze and decide and discover and create…. [W]hile mastery of specific content is
important, we want our graduates to learn how to think critically and creatively, express
themselves coherently, work collaboratively, and develop a global consciousness…. A college is not
a trade school. A college education ultimately must be designed to help students develop the skills
needed to become lifelong learners, capable of finding new information, evaluating it, and using it
in both the real world and the world of the mind.‖

Organizational Analysis

The organizational analysis and written case study will involve collecting and analyzing information
about an organization selected at the beginning of the semester and studied throughout the
course; your findings will be presented to your colleagues during the latter portion of the semester.
 The ―Analyzing the Organization: Design Module Assignment‖ at the end of each chapter in the
text provides a framework for your analysis. Your analysis will consist of answers to selected
questions from the Design Modules (there are close to 100 questions to choose from at the end of
the 14 chapters). Your final report should be typed, double-spaced, 10-12 pages in length (not
including title page and references), and is due no later than April 30. You may choose to work in
a team of 3-4 students on the project; team reports should be typed, double-spaced, 15-20 pages in
length (not including title page and references). Note: this project involves analyzing an
organization, not simply describing an organization. In recent semesters students have come to
rely too heavily on company-produced information such as that found on the company website.
Students are cautioned, therefore, to collect information from a variety of sources – over-reliance
on any single source, such as a company website, will negatively affect the evaluation of the paper.

Further details of these requirements and grading procedures will be discussed in class as is
necessary. Students are encouraged to stop in during office hours to talk about any problems or
suggestions you may have concerning the course, about careers or graduate school, or just about
management or things in general. If the scheduled office hours are inconvenient feel free to make
an appointment. To underscore the value of office hours, each student will be expected to meet
briefly with Dr. Partridge early in the semester. To facilitate electronic communication, students
are requested to schedule this initial appointment via e-mail. Please be reminded that USI
provides free e-mail for students through MyUSI. The University routinely uses this USI e-mail
account for both formal and informal communications with students. Students are expected to
check their USI e-mail account regularly for University correspondence. If you prefer to use
an e-mail account other than the one provided you by USI, you should forward your USI e-mail to
the account you use most often.


WHAT (SOME) STUDENTS HAVE LIKED LEAST…

      ―Too many supplemental readings‖
                                                 3
      ―Too many student presentations – boring to listen to and I‘m not sure what I‘m supposed
       to be getting from them‖
           o First, the briefings are intended to reinforce students’ analytical and communication
               skills: every USI business graduate should be able to read a Wall Street Journal or
               Harvard Business Review article, identify the key points (the implications for
               managers), and communicate those points effectively to their colleagues. Second,
               consistent with the active learning approach, if you’re not sure what the point of a
               briefing is (the “so what”), ask! All supplemental readings are intended to reinforce,
               elaborate upon, or provide additional examples of material contained in the text and
               lecture.
      ―Being randomly called on‖
           o Exams aren’t optional, projects aren’t optional, why should participation be voluntary?

Student Rights and Responsibilities: Academic Misconduct

Truth and honesty are necessary to a university community. Each student is expected to do his or
her academic work without recourse to unauthorized means of any kind. Both students and
faculty are expected to report violations to academic honesty. USI policies and regulations
governing the conduct of students and the procedures for handling violations of these policies and
regulations are found in the USI Bulletin and on the Dean of Students' website
(http://www.usi.edu/stl/index.htm).        Students are reminded of the College of Business
expectations regarding the avoidance of plagiarism; plagiarism includes:
        (1) failing to cite quotations and borrowed ideas,
        (2) failing to enclose borrowed language in quotation marks, and
        (3) failing to put summaries and paraphrases in your own words.

(Source: Diana Hacker, A Pocket Style Manual, 2e, Boston: Bedford/St. Martin‘s, 1997, p. 92.)
Students are specifically reminded that electronically copying text from a source document, such
as a web page, and pasting that into one‘s own document without putting the borrowed language
in quotation marks is plagiarism, even if the source of that language is included in an in-text
citation and reference list. Simply put, borrowed language must be set off in quotation marks.
Furthermore, borrowed ideas require in-text citation the same as borrowed language. Note well –
failure to use appropriate in-text referencing of either borrowed language or borrowed ideas is
unacceptable, regardless of the inclusion of a reference list.

Even if language and/or ideas borrowed from a secondary source are appropriately referenced,
College of Business faculty expect more from students. Copying and pasting someone else‘s words
and ideas into a document file does not demonstrate your understanding of the material.
Secondary sources are appropriate and necessary for a research project, but your contribution
should involve more than simply assembling the words and ideas of others.

COURSE OUTLINE, TENTATIVE SCHEDULE, AND SUPPLEMENTAL READING

Note: only those supplemental readings marked with a ―*‖ are assigned to all; others will be divided
for presentation by individual students. Those readings marked with a ―@‖ will be divided for
presentation by a pair of students. Readings presentations by individuals or teams should briefly
summarize the several key points and implications for managers; these presentations will be
