What might be possible if socially minded organizations and businesses acted more like movements than organizations? What might that look like in practice? Hildy Gottlieb poses these questions in her article, “Building Movements, Not Organizations.” She belongs to an international community of scholars and leaders in organizational development who are questioning the effectiveness of our current organizational models to adequately address the socio-economic challenges of today. By looking at a variety of case studies, both past and present, we will explore the values, beliefs, and practices that are transforming the way we think about how we work and make change-making a local, regional, or national level. Students will apply theory to practice by considering how to incorporate one or more movement-building practice into a local workplace.
