Abstract

This document contains a collection of 99 exam questions from the last 20 years of the Coordination, Control, and the Management of Organizations (CCMO) course. They are given to students at the end of the semester as a vehicle to aid their study for the final exam. These questions are a combination of stand-alone questions and questions that accompany journal and magazine articles. They are organized with the most recent exam questions last, so we recommend that readers start from the last questions and move toward the front of the document in their study.
