Organizations and Groups

Introducing students to theories and concepts that are related to social interaction within and between organizations, mainly focusing on how individuals interact together within (project) teams and groups.
Students will both learn about several of the main theories and concepts in this field, and will build an understanding and some experience in devising empirical studies around the studied phenomena.
Students will learn that organizations are multilevel phenomena, in which interaction (and its effects) occur at and across different levels of aggregation. This affects also how groups, project (teams), and organizations need to be studied (from a social science point of view).
