Macro Topics in Organizational Behavior (HBS 4880)/Organizational Analysis (Soc 224)
This course covers classical and key contemporary works in organization theory and surveys the main paradigms that are now active in the field. Organization theory draws on disciplinary roots in (alphabetically) economics, political science, psychology, and sociology to explain the origins, persistence, and disappearance of the institutional structures that order economic life (organizations, firms, networks, markets, and others). We will read some of the classic statements of the major approaches and trace the history of ideas as the field has developed up to the present. As the field is broad and deep in many spots, and I include a list of recommended further readings for each topic area.
