ED 764 Strategic Management and Change (4)
Exposes students to strategic management and the methods for applying it in a strategic change context. The conceptual and theoretical precursors to a resource-based view; the traditional, policy-based approach; and the competitive strategy model provide the necessary exposure to organizational and industrial economics as well as classic administrative theory. Students learn about the elements that comprise sustainable competitive advantage; the processes and techniques necessary to bring about an advantage; and the relationships among strategy, organization development, and change.
