Type LECTURE
Course Description This course examines major innovations in organizations and asks whether innovation itself can be organized.  We study a range of forms of organizing (e.g., bureaucratic, post-bureaucratic, and open architecture network forms) in a broad variety of settings: from fast food franchises to the military-entertainment complex, from airline cockpits to Wall Street trading rooms, from engineering firms to mega-churches, from scientific management at the turn of the twentieth century to collaborative filtering and open source programming at the beginning of the twenty-first.  Special attention will be paid to the relationship between organizational forms and new digital technologies.
