Changing Organizational Culture
An innovative hybrid online course including a live (in-person or zoom webinar) conference workshop offered by ICCM, FIT, ISODC, and THT. This course combines the best of online, onsite, and video conference formats.
This course begins with a three-hour session to be offered at the ICCM Summit on May 16, 2018. This session will be available to conference attendees, and simultaneously to online participants who are not able to attend the conference in person. In this three-hour hybrid session, the course will be introduced, course site content will be reviewed, and project teams will be developed. Team projects will involve participants working together to develop and design an organizational culture for the planned Mars space colony. Following the initial workshop presented at the conference the course will be three weeks in duration and will use engaging cases and active participation in experiential learning. The course will be completed on June 6, 2018 with a virtual presentation of team projects.
Managing, Measuring and Changing Organizational Culture - ICCM 1007
Participants in this course will learn an approach developed to make sense of culture and how it provides meaning for organizations. Well-tested and applied models and methods for understanding, measuring, and managing organizational culture are provided as background for course participants. Cultural dilemmas are used as a method to assess and plan an organizational culture for a Mars colony. Course content will be presented in three learning modules:
Project teams will develop an organizational culture model needed for colonists to live successfully in space (including governance and control, acquiring and distribution of resources, relationships with others, adapting to the physical environment, socio-technical innovations, and resolving cultural dilemmas among multi-cultural inhabitants).
We will discuss culture and organizations, a framework for understanding cultural values, socio-cultural encounters in organizational settings, multi-cultural diversity, and cultural dilemmas. Video interviews from experts will be discussed.
Project teams will apply Trompenaars 7D Model to develop features for organizational culture for Mars colony.
Designing organizational cultures, change dynamics, and measuring organizational culture will be discussed. Cases from former colonies will be analyzed to develop the Mars colony model.
