Information about the course of study
This course is part of the third semester in the bachelor’s degree in Global Business Informatics. 
Læringsmål:After the course the student should be able to

• Define the origin and importance of theories of organization
• Give an account of important concepts in various theoretical perspectives on organization
• Reflect on basic assumptions and analytic implications of different theories of organization
• Discuss different concepts of process.
• Apply concepts and analytical tools in defining and analyzing a problem in an organisation or socio-technical practice 
Fagligt indhold:Social practices in public and private enterprises as well as public institutions are increasingly understood as organized activities manageable by theories developed within the field of organization studies. At the same time the field has thrived dynamically not least under influence of the spreading of information technology in enterprises and society and the challenges it poses.
The course introduces to the field of organization theory including newer developments that build on a process perspective. The course will address how the various theories centre on certain topics such as work, thought, action, cognition, technology, practice or complexity and how they deal with such topics analytically. We will examine the implications of various theoretical approaches. Thus the objectives of the course are to introduce students to theories of organizations from early developments in the twentieth century to comtemporary debates, and enable students to identify organisation theories, their origins, importance and analytical implications, in theory and in organizations and the world we live in. 
Læringsaktiviteter:12 forelæsninger og 12 øvelsesgange

In the excise session students will present and discuss the course literature as well as build a case (studying a small setting, internet material etc.) to which they will apply theoretical approaches. There will be two obligatory written assignments focusing on the course literature during the semester.
