Then, consider the theories of organizations you have covered i this course (such as human relations, structuration, systems theory, critical theory, and more). Which of these do you think is the most valuable for understanding organizations today? Justify your response by clearly defining the theoretical perspective you have chosen.
Next, provide at least two pertinent organizational behavior examples that demonstrate the value and appropriateness of the Human Relations Theory. (For example, for Human Relations Theory, you may want to discuss examples of organizations that have been particularly hegemonic in that behavior.)
Finally, offer a detailed reflective commentary on how complex organizations may change going forward. For example, do you believe organizations will become more humane? Will they adopt more of a complex learning strategy? Could you envision a future where organizations become more authoritarian? The future you describe is up to you, but be sure to ground your commentary in relevant scholarly material.
