Organisational Theory, Managemnt and Admin - EDPA5001

Year - 2018

Organisation theories provide us with different lenses through which we can understand what an organisation is and what it means to be part of one. This unit explores the development of organisation theory from its beginnings to the present day. Concepts, theories and models from the perspectives of the Historical, Modern, Symbolic Interpretive and Postmodern periods are studied through selected original works by key writers in the field. From the early writings to Taylor and Weber, through to the words of Greenfield and Morgan different approaches to management and administration are investigated.
