|Description||This unit provides a capstone for students undertaking the Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Commerce combined programs. It aims to provide students with the practical application of identifying, analysing, and solving contemporary business problems that might involve planning, implementing and evaluating organisational changes which provide solutions to such problems. Students will be introduced to a range of methodologies at each stage of the process of solving business problems, executing solutions, and implementing organisational change. In doing so, the unit will allow students to: apply theories and concepts of business problem solving and change implementation in the context of a specific business case; provide a process framework of business problem solving and team-based learning within which they can integrate functional disciplinary knowledge they have been exposed to in their disciplinary majors; and develop a range of generic skills in problem solving, critical analysis, team-working, research and communication skills.|
