Excerpt from course description

Organizing Digitally


Complete course description will be ready summer 2023.

Organizations are increasingly using digital technologies in the organization of internal as well as external activities and resources, frequently by use of digital platforms as organizational infrastructures. In addition, digital tools are used to support organizational process such as planning, budgeting, monitoring, and giving feedback. The introduction of such tools into the organizing processes fundamentally affect the way organizations are understood, structured, and managed. Some of the gains that drive this transformation are related to greater agility and adaptability to enable organizations to stay relevant in rapidly changing external environments and increased efficiency and speed by reduction of hierarchical levels. Digital technologies can increase self-organizing.
