Course Description
This 8 weeks online programme is our flagship course on Organizational Culture
Throughout the programme you will acquire essential knowledge needed to become an expert in the field of Organizational Culture. The course is a balanced mix of theory and practical tools.
Each lecture is developed with a multi-disciplinary approach based on the most valid, well-recognized theoretical and practical tools from organizational psychology, organizational behavior, management and leadership studies.
The course will examine the relationship between culture, leadership and performance. It is designed to help you bridge the gap between the «what» and «how to» of organizational cultures.
Since organizational cultures are reflections of their leaders, the Organizational Culture: An essential guide for Leaders compels you to examine how your beliefs and values translate to the culture within your organization, unit or team.
Through case studies, inquiry, reflection, and discussion, we will engage in assessing the most effective tools to drive positive action in culture management.

Totally recommend this course to anyone looking to build or change the culture in their own business. It helped me understand what culture is and develop a list of practical tools I could use to structure the culture development process in my own company. It was great for networking as well. All in all, the course was worth the investment - it is an experience not a bunch of classes you sit and listen to.
