MSLCE Students Get Real Life Experience Analyzing Organizations

By Ben Levine

Today, we’re taking a look at one of our core classes and what students learned. Here’s MSLCE student Ben Levine describing our Organizational Processes course taught by MSLCE director Pablo Boczkowski.

The Organizational Processes course is the base that helps us understand how organizations function. We analyzed case studies using “The Three Lenses” perspective as a means of breaking organizations down into the various components that make them work. The lenses are: strategic design, political, and cultural. All of our cases focused on the creative fields and we even got to work directly with a local arts organization on a group project where we provided in-depth analysis of the organization and offered suggestions for how they can best handle a large change they’re going through.
