Effective policy analysis and implementation often depend on understanding cultures

Overview of the course
Effective policy analysis and implementation often depend on understanding cultures, organizations and technologies and how they interact with one another. Whether considering the culture of political groups, military or business organizations, religions, the old or the young, farm or non-farm, or any other differentiation scheme, significant issues are involved. Failing to take note of cultural aspects in societies can cause even the most carefully crafted public policy plans to fail. We focus on the role of culture in the context of groups, organizations and societies together with culture-related economic and technological processes at several levels of impact: organizational, regional, national and international. The course also emphasizes the culture of teams and team approaches to learning. And there is considerable emphasis on the role of technology as it affects culture and organizations, since developments like blogs and social networks are major factors in public policy implementation.

 

*Required Question (double weight)— How might the new administration use some of the Culture/Organization/Technology ideas discussed in class in particularly difficult policy challenges—select five challenges

Comment:  The purpose of this question is to look into Schein, GGS, Triple Package, WDR, HDR, etc. plus the class presentations, and other sources, with a public policy agenda in mind, and be specific about where the course ideas could be employed in policy formulation. It asks you to select some real-world policy issues, and to speculate on how to solve them through organization/tech/ culture approaches   Examples:  Can Montaner, Harrison, Diamond,  etc., help in suggesting domestic as well as foreign policy approaches with respect to the empowerment of women, reduction of  trade barriers, etc? Can governments take advantage of the Lewin/Schein approach to unfreezing, internalization and refreezing in effecting cultural change in organizations?  Are there technology issues associated with Social Media that will need to be addressed? You get the idea.  Suggestion: for each of the themes you select, pair a specific policy challenge with at one or more specific course-related ideas.

 

2. More on Jonathan Haidt’s perspective on political dialog.  First, review carefully these two Jonathan Haidt videos, especially the Wharton interview. Then, try to sort out what you feel to be are the implementable approaches to dealing with his concerns,

Comment: we have spent some time on the Haidt TED lecture in our online postings and he has been in the news lately too.  For the student who wants to go well beyond that, this question suggests first of all a review of the appropriate class postings, and then a solution – oriented approach to dealing with what you think are the most significant challenges offered by the professor. There’s no format anticipated, but you will certainly need to have some outside citations as you navigate this question.


3. Culture and mainstream thinkers worldwide.  Select some insights from two or three of the talks below or others you may choose that we have not seen already in the course—non-TED examples are particularly welcome --and relate them to some of the course themes.
