Designing and Leading the Entrepreneurial Organization: Course Description

The 'Designing and Leading the Entrepreneurial Organization' Open CourseWare, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, offers a critical examination of the role that leaders play in shaping the actions and culture of a business or organization. Students learn how to build analytical business models that will help to build long term success. Rather than presenting a survey in leadership, the course focuses on specific principles of high level management using real world case studies. Topics covered in the course include organizational architecture, group behavior, interpersonal influence and leadership and motivation in a business setting. The course is divided into three modules, which explore how to set the direction of a business, how to build the skills required for the business and how to maintain growth and momentum. Professor Diane Burton from MIT's Sloan School of Management teaches this graduate-level course.

Lecture notes, suggested readings and ideas for potential student projects are available on the course website. If you're interested in taking this free online course, visit the entrepreneurial leadership course page.
