1 Unit, GSBGEN 555, Pass/Fail
Organizations are often designed for efficiency or optimization of workflow, not for user empathy. How do you design for both?
This pop-up class is geared toward the design (or redesign) for empathy-based organizations. It will teach early-stage leaders about the three basic levers they have for organizational design/re-design: organizational culture, organizational structure (informal and formal), and organizational routines.
Emphasis will be placed on how to align these levers to facilitate communication and to structure workflows for empathy-based organizations.
