MGB-223-001 Bay Area MBA Fall 2019 Power and Influence in Management Palmer, Donald Even Weekend Saturday San Ramon 3 0 40 0 MGB 223 001 50946 3248304 Most social scientists define power as "the capacity to get what you want over the resistance of others" and influence as "the translation of power into action". Power and Influence in Management examines the bases of subunit and individual power in organizations and the means by which subunit and individual power is translated into influence. The course assumes that leaders sometimes must acquire power to be effective, but recognizes that leaders do not always use power in the interests of the organization. Thus, the course explores the positive and negative effects that power and its use can have on organizational effectiveness and in the process considers the ethics of power and influence. Power and Influence in Management also recognizes that leaders are not the only organizational participants who acquire power and exercise influence in organizations. Thus the course focuses not just on leaders but also middle level managers and lower level employees. The course's most basic premise is that managers at all levels of the organization can improve their effectiveness (both in pursuit of their own and their organization's interests) if they better understand how power is accumulated and used in organizations. Class sessions are devoted to discussing case studies in light of theoretical arguments advanced in readings.Prerequisite: 201A. 118566 Active 201910 http://gsm.ucdavis.edu/faculty/donald-palmer Letter 0 Strategy, Organizational Behavior

Getting such changes implemented is a challenge. There are several cases where companies fail to achieve the desired change! They fail to get acceptance, they fail to get adoption and their grand vision remains unfulfilled. The problems are traced back to human nature, to why employees will not implement a change even though it appears a definitely better way to do business, and how bosses fail to address the micro-environment around impacted employees. If they had some OCM training, their business success would be significantly better. 799158 Active No Textbook Required A textpak is needed for this course.

As the traditional lines blur between nonprofit enterprises, government, and business, it is critical that business students understand the opportunities and challenges in this new landscape. Through guest speakers, case discussion, lecture, and student presentations this course will explore this emerging field. Students will be expected to develop a business plan for a social enterprise. Because the field of social entrepreneurship is interdisciplinary and in its infancy, the course will be introductory in nature and will draw heavily from cases, speaker experience, and student inquiry. 118599 Active Please refer to the course syllabus for textbook information.

Power and Influence in Management examines the bases of subunit and individual power in organizations and the means by which subunit and individual power is translated into influence. The course assumes that leaders sometimes must acquire power to be effective, but recognizes that leaders do not always use power in the interests of the organization. Thus, the course explores the positive and negative effects that power and its use can have on organizational effectiveness and in the process considers the ethics of power and influence. Power and Influence in Management also recognizes that leaders are not the only organizational participants who acquire power and exercise influence in organizations. Thus the course focuses not just on leaders but also middle level managers and lower level employees. The course's most basic premise is that managers at all levels of the organization can improve their effectiveness (both in pursuit of their own and their organization's interests) if they better understand how power is accumulated and used in organizations. Class sessions are devoted to discussing case studies in light of theoretical arguments advanced in readings.Prerequisite: 201A. 118566 Active 201910 http://gsm.ucdavis.edu/faculty/donald-palmer Letter 0 Strategy, Organizational Behavior
