Perspectives and paradigms in management theory (6 points)


Leader: Dr Eddie Vaughan

Caulfield First semester 2003 (Day)
Caulfield First semester 2004 (Day)

Synopsis: Different viewpoints on the rationality and legitimacy of management structure and process will be examined. For example, the assumptions about reality that underpin social science predispose researchers to look for evidence of systemic order and interpersonal forces, and to view rationality as a formal and instrumental process. This contrasts with alternative paradigms which view management as a political process, or maybe even theatre.
