This subject introduces students to the key concepts of management. Four domains of management are explored: self, others, organisations and eco-systems. Managing self includes topics such as personal motivation, creativity and purpose. Managing others looks at working in teams, conflict, diversity and leadership. Managing organisations explores the role of firms, the creation of new businesses, the pursuit of competitive advantage, and the role of social purpose. Managing eco-systems includes topics such as value chains, innovation and stakeholder management. Students will be introduced to management theory, research and case studies that will develop their ability to manage complex real-world business problems, and to create a workplace where people can thrive.
Intended learning outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
- Describe the basic theories and models within management and review real life examples of these models.
- Apply major theories and models from the field of management to analyse organisational problems and generate realistic solutions and recommendations, as presented in case studies
- Identify and critique management approaches in the field and collaboratively develop alternative models of practice
- Analyse the key factors in the external and internal environments that affect the management of an organisation and evaluate their influence on contemporary management issues such as innovation and entrepreneurship
- Appraise management frameworks with regards to their impact on organisational performance
In this subject you will have the opportunity to develop important generic skills:
- Problem solving skills and analytical skills will be fostered in the tutorial program and more directly within the case study where students have to apply theoretical material to a mixture of hypothetical and real-world case studies.
- Collaborative learning and team-work skills will be fostered through working in small teams on exercises, role plays, and simulations that are incorporated into the tutorial program.
- Verbal and written communication skills will be developed via the case study tasks, the written assignment and through the experience of peer review. The interactive nature of the tutorial program will also, indirectly, help to improve communication skills.
