Intended learning outcomes

The course gives knowledge and insights from a management perspective that prepares students for working with employees and organizing effectively. After the course the students shall be

  • able to present and understand basic concepts, theories and perspectives about organizations and leadership.
  • able to use these concepts, theories and perspectives in basic analyses of leadership processes.

  • Course content

    The course has its roots in organisational theory and will through lectures and case studies introduce the students to the phenomena of leadership. A special relationship between the leader and the follower (the led), power and authority and also how the performance of a leader, the group processes and participating might be designed. Different models and perspectives on how to understand leadership will be discussed. The relation between style and behavior of leadership will be distinguished in a variety of contexts.
    Seminars: Different seminars, in groups, will support a deeper understanding of leadership and the organizational context for pursuing it. Through supervised work in groups an empirical study will be prepared and discussed in a final seminar.
