...The more I use it [OrgCon®], especially with small groups that are on the verge of change, the more useful I find the software as a decision support tool.Pat Keith
OrgCon is an organization theory based, executive validated software program which can help your students better understand the concepts and ideas of organization theory. OrgCon begins with some 60 questions about the case or real world organization to create a database. Answering the questions themselves illustrates concepts, how they are measured and how they are operationalized in a real situation. Then, OrgCon will diagnose the organization to identify misfits among contingency elements and between contingencies and the organizational design and characteristics. Again, OrgCon diagnosis is theory based. From there, recommendations from the theory are given for the particular case situation. In the process, your student is guided by a theory based diagnostic and recommendation tool which helps the student appreciate and understand the theory and its application.
OrgCon enhances the classroom lecture, discussion and case analysis; it does not replace it.
Analyzing your organization in strategy, contingency, and total design fit.
