This course is an examination of the treatment of business specifically and organizations generally in literature. This course is designed to aid students in viewing organizations from an external perspective, with the prospect of developing an in-depth understanding of organizations and their leaders. Overviews of the organizations are stressed by using an interdisciplinary approach to the study of various bureaucracies, businesses, governments, and other forms of organizations. Poets, fiction writers, essayists, and others comment through their works on modern organized life, work, the "organization man and woman," and organizational values. Philosophies of leadership are considered, with accompanying attention paid to policy making and direction by organization leaders.
