Postgraduate Faculty of Business and Economics

Leader: Dr Christine Lee


Gippsland Second semester 2007 (Off-campus)


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.


The learning goals associated with this unit are to:


Individual assignment (2000 words): 20%
Individual assignment (3500 words): 40%
Examination (2 hours): 40%


Must have passed four 9000-level units including MGX9850
