From this point of view, one can distinguish three major classes of methods - randomized, aesthetic, and scientific. The core of the course is the development of the aesthetic method, which is based on a semiordered incomplete and inconsistent program linking the beginning and the end in some indeterministic situations.

The aim of this course is to explore how the challenge of change in organizations can be managed effectively. The basic premise of the course is that change is often precipitated by external drivers such as technological innovation, deregulation, industry consolidation, new political priorities, and/or persistent performance problems. The challenge of change is to recognize the drivers and to develop and implement strategies to meet them effectively. Over the course of the semester, we will explore and evaluate various approaches, both theoretical and on the ground, to the challenge.

The course will highlight the components of an effective negotiation and teach students to analyze their own behavior in negotiations.

I cannot teach you a set of formulas that will maximize your profit, although you will learn many concepts that may help and you will learn to recognize which strategies are effective for particular situations. Gain a broad intellectual understanding of the central concepts of negotiation. These concepts will be the building blocks from which we can systematically understand and evaluate a negotiation process. Improve your analytical abilities in understanding the behavior of individuals, groups, and organizations in competitive situations. Experience the negotiation process, and learn how to evaluate the costs and benefits of alternative actions. Develop confidence in the negotiation process as an effective means for resolving conflict in organizations.
