Mini-Course: Organizing Technological Change with Professor Luis Garicano
This is a three-day course taught by Luis Garicano on the interaction between organizational change and technological change. We shall study how organizations change as a result of digitization, changes in the role of managers, and how organizational structure and change mediates productivity growth. Garicano is a professor of Economics and Strategy and head of the Center for the Digital Economy at IE Business School. He has previously been a Full Professor of Economics and Strategy at Chicago Booth (where he has remained a visiting professor, teaching in the Hong Kong and London XP programs, ever since he left Booth) and at the London School of Economics, and has been a visiting Professor at MIT and LBS among other institutions. Garicano is a leading researcher on topics such as the impact of technology on economic growth, the organization of economic activity, and the future of work in the knowledge economy. His research has shown that it is the interaction between technology and its implementation, through organizational change, that really matters in inducing productivity and change. The sessions each day will cover a different topic, and you may register for one or all of the sessions.
