Strategies for Building Robust Collaboration Cultures

Master's level | 15 credits | Course code: PV2103

The course is not given as a stand-alone course this academic year, but can be included in the program/course package. For information contact the department.

About the Course

The course offers a theoretical platform and a concrete methodology for strategical development of an organization's collaboration culture, with particular reference to the capacity to resolve disagreements and interpersonal frictions early and constructively in multicultural settings. Unskilfully managed conflicts can be costly for organizations, not only in monetary terms, but also in terms of effectiveness, quality, levels of trust and motivation of managers and the workforce, staff turnover and health consequences. Organizations permeated by a problem-solving mindset and an open and constructive communication culture are well equipped to sustain organizational learning and creativity, skilfully manage resistance to change and develop a strong capacity to adapt to changing conditions.
