Learning in this course is organized around a student project that aims at improving an organizational process in a specific real-life context. The projects are carried out in groups. Each group will identify and define a relevant improvement initiative in close collaboration with its case organization, analyze the current situation of the chosen process and, based on the analysis, develop and justify a plan or a solution for improving the defined situation.

The project is supported by lectures, practices and readings on the theoretical perspectives chosen for this course as well as mandatory assignments that are directly related to the groups’ own projects.
Instruction for the projects will consist of exercise sessions organized around the mandatory assignments for the whole course and individual, on-demand instruction for the groups that request it.
