OB 310: Org 2.0: The Analytics of Organization Design

This course will show you how to deploy analytics to find better solutions for a broad range of design issues, ranging from employee selection and retention to organizational structure and even organizational culture. You will cover a range of analytical techniques with broad applicability (machine learning, network analysis, and agent-based models for example). The suite of new ideas that characterize "Org2.0" represents a major departure from the mainstream approach to organization design, which relies extensively on copying "best practices" from other companies, represents organizations as "boxes and arrows" organization charts, and is typically obsessed with incentive compensation and reporting as the key organizational/HR decisions. In Org2.0, you will learn how to use analytics to find out what works specifically for your company (rather than what worked in others), develop detailed models of interactions among employees (rather than among boxes) to help them collaborate successfully, and think of organization design as a combination of factors which can all be better understood through analytics. This is a hands-on class: it will rely extensively on group exercises, in which you will be able to learn enough about analytical tools and programming to be able to collaborate with analysts and evaluate their work. You will also have the chance to interact with industry speakers who have been applying these techniques in practice. A great aspect of the course is that it will bring you value regardless of how much you already know about analytics or statistics: practical exercises will familiarize you with how analytical techniques are implemented, and class discussions will enable those already familiar to contribute to others and expand their own knowledge. What you learn in the class will be an asset to you in a wide range of jobs linked to strategy execution, post-merger integration, re-organizations and human resources, regardless of how big or small your company is.
