Cultural values and management practices (6 points)


Leader: To be advised

Gippsland Second semester 2004 (OCL)

Synopsis: This unit focuses on specific environmental cultural dimensions that distinguish organisations operating in different countries and the basis for indigenous management practices. Attention will focus on understanding work culture from the 'inside' view of the indigenous management practices rather than an 'outside' view of using western concepts to analyse indigenous management practices. Sections in the unit will be country specific and each country's work values will be studied using a common framework of how organisational effectiveness is affected by a country's external environment, micro and macro level of organisation and indigenous work culture.

Assessment: Essay (2000 words): 25% + Field study (3000 words): 35% + Examination (2 hours): 40%

Prerequisites: Must have passed four 9000-level units and one of MGG9302 or MGG9320 or MGG9324
