Objectives: Being a reliable and effective leader in an organisation depends on one’s ability to recognise the situation, analyse issues, and respond wisely to the context and promote relevant solutions. The purpose of this course, thus, is to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of organisational systems so that they can be more informed observers of systems and more effective participants in them. This course also will be to help students to develop the skills to analyse and address leadership challenges and opportunities.

Contents: The course has two major components. The first is “macro” in nature. It focuses on organisational level issues and problems, such as how an organisation should be designed and what strategy it should follow. We will also look at organisations as political entities and in terms of culture and control systems. The second part of the course focuses on individual and small group issues such as how to manage conflict, handle ethical issues and make effective decisions.

Methodology: Activities in the class include lectures, case studies and group discussions.

Means of evaluation: Active and creative participation in the course and a final exam or a case analysis with a group.
