137 Initiating, Navigating, and Negotiating the Dynamics of Change in County Government

This course focuses on changing policy and administrative approaches in county government. The course discussion explores a six-part framework developed from change processes in children’s services, health services, homelessness, and other issues for underserved or vulnerable communities challenging county governments in California. The class experience is highly interactive, with participants applying to change model steps to their specific challenges. The discussion specifically addresses moving from current path dependencies and problem identification, with processes for redesigning institutions, policies, and organizational structures. The course is applied not theoretical; county focused, not general. 

The course has two parts: one, individually, prior to class, watching a one-hour documentary that was broadcast on PBS on the career of a county supervisor which will be discussed in part two, as a group, meeting for a three-hour class. The material includes worksheets for participants. The course intends to help participants to initiate, as well as navigate and negotiate the dynamics of change in county government.

Instructor: Dr. Rich Callahan is associate professor of management at the University of San Francisco.
