ORLJ 5019: Data-based interventions in organizations

Prerequisite: ORLJ 4009. Reviews tools for collecting, organizing, and analyzing qualitative and quantitative data in organizations. Students explore and practice the use of data collection techniques most frequently utilized by practitioners in the field (secondary data, observations, questionnaires, interviews, and focus groups), as well as practice analysis techniques associated with these tools. The use of diagnostic tools is considered within the framework of the consulting cycle (contracting and planning, data collection, data analysis, and data feedback). Upon completion of this course, the students should be well prepared to engage in a consultation with the real client.
