ORG-817: Systems Thinking: Building Organizations That Last Entire Course

 

ORG 817 Topic 1 DQ 1

 

Properties of systems theory include communication mechanisms, boundaries, goal orientation, inputs, outputs, throughputs, and feedback. Of these, which do you believe are most relevant to organizational leaders? Why? Which are most relevant for organizational development? Why?

 

ORG 817 Topic 1 DQ 2

 

General systems theory (GST) includes the notion of interconnection; what affects one part of an organization affects all parts of the organization. To what extent, if at all, can the application of GST help avert organizational entropy? Support your position.

 

ORG 817 Topic 2 Assignment GST and Chaordic Systems Theory

 

Systems thinking enables an understanding of the complexity of organizations, the seeming coexistence of chaos and order in organizations, and the need to establish sustainability within organizations. Since, considering viable applications of both systems theory and chaordic theory is necessary for organizational leaders, you will explore both general systems theory (GST) and chaordic systems theory in this assignment.

General Requirements:

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:

  • Instructors will be using a grading rubric to grade the assignments. It is recommended that learners review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment in order to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations for successful completion of the assignment.
  • Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments. The APA Style Guide is located in the Student Success Center.
  • Refer to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Associationfor specific guidelines related to doctoral level writing. The Manual contains essential information on manuscript structure and content, clear and concise writing, and academic grammar and usage.
  • This assignment requires that at least two additional scholarly research sources related to this topic, and at least one in-text citation from each source be included.
  • You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Refer to the LopesWrite Technical Support articlesfor assistance.

Directions:

Write a paper (1,250-1,500 words) explaining the concepts of general systems theory and chaordic systems theory as applied in organizations today. Include the following in your paper:

  1. An explanation of the components of general systems theory.
  2. A research-based discussion of how these components relate to organizations.
  3. An explanation of the development of chaordic systems theory.
  4. A research-based discussion of how leaders might apply chaordic systems theory to achieve sustainability within an organization.

 

ORG 817 Topic 2 DQ 1

 

Does chaordic systems theory provide a better understanding of how an organization functions than general systems theory? Why or why not?

 

ORG 817 Topic 2 DQ 2

 

To what extent, if at all, does the application of systems thinking influence stability management in a complex system? Explain.

 

ORG 817 Topic 3 DQ 1

 

A learning organization is one that is continually enhancing and promoting the capabilities of individual workers. Given this definition, what are the most significant steps leaders must take in moving an organization toward becoming a learning organization? Why are these steps significant?

 

ORG 817 Topic 3 DQ 2

 

For a traditional organization to become a learning organization that is continually enhancing and promoting the capabilities of individual workers, a significant shift in organizational culture is required. What do you believe is the single most important change in culture that must occur to transform a traditional organization to a learning organization? Why? What steps should a leader take to foster this change? Explain. To what extent, if at all, might the use of systems thinking influence the leader’s actions in this transformation of organizational culture? Support your position.

 

ORG 817 Topic 4 DQ 1

 

What do you believe are the greatest barriers to the transformation from a traditional organization to a learning organization? Why? In what ways do these barriers inhibit the transformation to a learning organization? Explain.

 

ORG 817 Topic 4 DQ 2

 

Does applying systems thinking increase or diminish the number of available options for overcoming the barriers to becoming a learning organization? Support your position. How do leaders determine which of the available options is best suited to the organization? Explain.

 

ORG 817 Topic 5 Assignment Research Methodology

 

The transition from a consumer of research to a producer of research includes becoming an expert in the design and methodology required for the research task in addition to becoming an expert in the content of the research. Since not every nuance of every research design and method can be addressed in the limited space of a doctoral program, doctoral learners must take the responsibility to become fully immersed in the research design and methodology that is best suited to address the research questions of the dissertation. In this assignment, you will make a step toward both becoming an expert in the research methodology of your dissertation and to creating a first draft of the methodology section of your prospectus. Please note that a passing score on this assignment does not indicate an approved research design or methodology. You will work with your dissertation chair and methodologist to further refine and focus the design and methodology once you enter the dissertation phase of the program.

 

General Requirements:

 

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:

  • Refer to the potential dissertation research questions and problem statement you drafted as an assignment in a previous course.
  • Retain this paper for reference in future courses.
  • This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
  • Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments. The APA Style Guide is located in the Student Success Center.
  • Refer to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Associationfor specific guidelines related to doctoral level writing. The Manual contains essential information on manuscript structure and content, clear and concise writing, and academic grammar and usage.
  • This assignment requires that at least two additional scholarly research sources related to this topic, and at least one in-text citation from each source be included.
  • You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Refer to the LopesWrite Technical Support articlesfor assistance.

Directions:

Write a paper (750-1,000 words) in which you present a clearly articulated argument for whether a qualitative or quantitative research methodology is the best approach to answer the potential dissertation research questions and address the problem statement you drafted in a previous course. Include the following in your paper:

  1. A literature-supported discussion identifying the critical attributes of the selected methodology (qualitative or quantitative).
  2. A literature-supported rationale that clearly articulates why the critical attributes of the selected methodology are a best or appropriate fit for the stated problem and research questions. Cite specific examples where a similar methodology was used to answer similar research questions or to address a similar problem statement.
  3. A literature-supported rationale that clearly articulates why the opposing methodology (qualitative or quantitative) is not appropriate for the study.
  4. A concluding statement that clearly affirms the methodological choice (qualitative of quantitative).

 

ORG 817 Topic 5 DQ 1

 

Organizational learning may be described as occurring on three levels: individual, team, and organizational. Is it valid and meaningful to conceptualize team level learning as a connector between individual level learning and organizational learning? Why or why not?

 

ORG 817 Topic 5 DQ 2

 

When viewing a team as a closed-loop system, each member becomes dependent on the next. How does this dependency influence the dynamics of a team from a systems perspective? Explain. How does a team in a closed-loop system interact with a learning organization? Explain.
