San Francesco - Via della Quarquonia 1 (Classroom 2 )
Our seminar will open with an overview of perspectives on Temporary organizations. Students will be encouraged to examine how the various theoretic perspectives and dominant research questions in the temporary organizing literature can provide the basis for each student to create a research proposal to pursue a set of research questions related to their individual scholarly interests. There will also be an opportunity to engage in a team case study of Villa Guinigi to apply some of the principles of Temporary Organizing to examine Villa Guinigi and to explore the opportunities and challenges facing Villa Guinigi in balancing temporary versus permanent (institutionalized) aspects of its organization and offerings.
