OLI 7304 Business Acumen and Strategic Leadership of Learning, Improvement and Innovation

Those responsible for leading learning must understand the business of the organization and how financial concerns shape organization decisions. This course provides an in-depth examination of how organizational learning fits into the strategic planning of the organization and its future. It focuses on the organizational mission as well as the environment in which the organization operates. Students examine the social, political, economic, legal and technology forces (business and environmental surveillance) that may impact an organization’s mission and results and use that information to generate new strategies for learning that support the future growth and development of the organization.
