Submitted to the Program of Organizational Dynamics in the Graduate Division of the School of Arts and Sciences in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Master of Science in Organizational Dynamics at the University of Pennsylvania

Advisor: Larry Starr


This capstone is a response to four questions asked by four different professors with whom I studied in the Organizational Dynamics program at the University of Pennsylvania. The first question asked was about multi-frame analysis, and how the ability to use multiple frames is a valuable skill for managers and leaders in organizations. The second question focused on innovation, and how it can be taught in schools and classrooms to students. The next two questions focused on China; the first is about the socioeconomic and political impacts of large infrastructure projects in the United States and China, and the final question is about the economic challenges China faced in late 2011.
