EDOC 767 Transorganizational Development (4)
Introduces the literature and skills related to transorganizational development-the creation and development of alliances and coalitions. This strategic change involves the analysis of the organization's political, cultural, and technical systems so that they align with the coalition. Some of the issues discussed are emergent versus planned change, stages of transorganizational systems development, stakeholder analysis, resource analysis, change agent roles and skills, the development of shared norms and values, establishment of subordinate goals, and the use of power and politics within the coalition.
