Commencement of studies in spring 2020
Very often, organisations pronounce employees to be their most important resource. Although this statement reflects findings from scientific studies showing that the behavior and cognition of people in organisations can influence many corporate parameters and outcomes, the question remains, how –specifically – organisations can create value through the human element.
This class will therefore focus on insights of understanding, accommodating, and steering the behavior of employees in organisations. Furthermore, the class will emphasize how organisations can use this knowledge to set up people management structures and practices that can create lasting competitive advantages for a company.
