Organizational life is complex. Document a list of the complexities of organizational life. Essentially answer the question: What makes organizations complex?
To start simply list your own experiential findings. Once you have documented your list ask some executives in your organization (or outside) why organizational life is so complex and synthesize their answers with your list.
Second describe a real/concrete problem or issue ubiquitous in organizational life. Present a specific question you will address relative to the problem or issue. Select two organization theory perspectives that you think are useful in addressing the question. Constructively argue how each perspective addresses the question.
Third choose a metaphor that you can apply to your organization. Use the metaphor to describe the organization—that is the work conducted in the organization the climate and culture of the organization its conditions interpersonal relationships etc. This is not a mere description of your organizational experience but rather an insightful and holistic analysis of the organization and how it works.
