Managing People and Organisations - SMBA6007

Year - 2018

This unit draws a parallel between modern organisations and the broader social environment in which they operate. It demonstrates how global, technological and demographic trends are re-shaping modern workplaces and highlights the importance of inclusive leadership in managing people. Students build experience in leading change in organisations, and develop a better understanding of the dynamics of organisational culture, power and influence and the role of diversity. Students develop this understanding by critically reflecting on their own work contexts, and through real-world case studies focus on the implementation of a change management program addressing significant workforce and leadership diversity challenges. By the end of this unit of study, students are better equipped to drive organisational performance, and get the most from the people they manage.
