Syllabus SW713 004 Winter 2012 Welcome to BA840 SI702 SW713 also known as The ICOS course ICOS is the Interdisciplinary Committee on Organization Studies and it has existed at Michigan for 21 years For most of this time ICOS has hosted a Friday afternoon seminar series that brings scholars from many diverse disciplines to the University of Michigan to speak on topics relevant to organizations and organizing Organizations and organizing is a fairly big tent in recent semesters topics have included emotional intelligence financial regulation economic diversity and growth American symphony orchestras architecture s effects on scientific innovation leadership patent lawsuits enhancing patient safety the emergence of biotech clusters in different cities and the rituals of high table at Cambridge University among others This semester s schedule is posted here http icos umich edu lectures Note that all sessions will meet in K1310 in the business school and run from 1 30 3 00 We start at 1 30 real time not Michigan time so that speakers have the full 90 minutes The ICOS course comes in two formats The one credit version offered pass fail where possible and available to both masters and doctoral students requires attending the weekly seminar completing the readings for the week and participating in the discussion either live during the session or virtually via the ICOS webpage which is at www icos umich edu You will first need to register at the site here http icos umich edu user register We will check periodically to ensure that the virtual discussion is lively for those that have not participated in the face to face discussion Once you are registered you can join the virtual seminar by posting comments or questions either before the talk preferably by 11 30 Friday or afterwards For instance if you wanted to post a question prior to Israel Drori s talk this Friday you would log in to the site visit the page for Issy s talk http icos umich edu lecture 2012 01 06 and click on the Discussion tab Click Add new comment and you are in The page will stay live indefinitely and will be available to the speaker to join the discussion Doctoral students can also elect to take the ICOS course for three credits This is taken for a letter grade In addition to meeting the requirements for the one credit version this format requires a substantial paper on an organizationally relevant topic You can think of it as a concurrent independent study Students typically use this option to work on a literature review for their dissertation or to generate a substantial research proposal or to explore an organizational topic that would benefit from guidance by ICOS faculty The paper cannot be used for any other course Students electing the three credit option are asked to send us Jerry Davis at gfdavis umich edu and Diane Kaplan Vinokur at dkv umich edu a brief proposal for a paper by the second week of class We will give feedback on the appropriateness of the topic and some guidance toward relevant readings A penultimate draft of the paper is due by March 28 We will then provide feedback so that a revised final version can be turned in within 5 days after the last class i e April 13 The University s guidelines suggest that courses should entail about 3 hours of work per credit hour so you should expect to spend roughly 8 10 hours per week working on the paper if you choose this option That s all for now Please let us know if you have any questions We look forward to seeing you at the opening session on January 6 Jerry Davis
