MAM 8025 - Systems Thinking, Analytics and Ethical Decision Making

Business enterprises daily face new and complex situations that call for "out-of-the-box" thinking and entrepreneurial problem solving. Individuals and teams need organizational intelligence, the knowledge and practical wisdom contained in the workforce and the networks in which they participate, to make well informed and innovative decisions. With systems thinking, transdisciplinary analysis and integrative principles as a foundation, this course examines the art of solving problems collaboratively, making organizational decisions and taking sustainable, ethical action, as well as promoting innovation and taking the risk to try new ideas and approaches in a distributed intercultural work environment. The course also explores effective use of technology to accomplish this. 3 credit(s)
