Description This unit provides an integrated approach to both micro and macro aspects of organisational behaviour in relation to the supply chain industry. This unit examines actions at three different levels of analysis: the individual, the group and the organisation and is presented in three parts. Part 1 covers the strategic thinking and the general environment affecting the work place. It also examines the fundamentals of individual at work. Part 2 focuses on leadership, work teams, and power and conflict in organisations. Part 3 attends to organisational structure, culture and strategic change management. The integration of these three parts will provide students with effective leadership behaviour and management competencies which will enable students to participate more successfully within the supply chain industry. Case study analysis will provide students with a realistic exposure to the organisational issues currently existing in supply chain management.
