In this course, we explore how professionals and organizations can cope with the current major transitions in societies and markets. Developments in technological, cultural, economic, ecological and behavioural fields fundamentally affect organizations and will change the demands on communication professionals dramatically. This course focuses on these transitions and will give students an overview in contemporary theoretical insights and practical implications for organizing and communicating. We will visit companies that face these challenges. Students will think about and create their own portfolio of competences and vision needed for 21st century professional life.|
