Mixed methodologies and organizational change

Summer School     –       24-27 July 2018

The course provides the students the skills and knowledge to engage with mixed methodologies for the analysis of organizational data, applied to the context of organizational change management, to improve their employability in organizations.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) represent 99% of all businesses in the EU. For this kind of organizations, qualitative information about each organizational context must be mixed with quantitative information to plan and act effectively.
Change management/organisational development will be the focus of the course. Both qualitative and quantitative perspectives will be explored with real data from global and local based companies. Questions that will be addressed are: What is the nature of change management and organisational development? How can we address change across large and small enterprises? What drives change? What are the challenges of change management initiatives? What are the strategies to overcome barriers?
