Study mode and course location
This course reflects the external and internal challenges and demands currently faced by managers. Exponential growth in new technologies, intense global competition, the elimination of industry boundaries and the opening of previously closed global markets have characterised the start of the new millennium. As a consequence, the skills necessary to deal with this complex and varied range of factors are necessarily complex and varied themselves.
The course content focuses on flexibility and agility at an individual and organisational level. It does so firstly by exploring the fundamentals of individual, group and organisational behaviour and performance, organisational dynamics, and the importance of self-awareness, learning and self-management. Through its management discipline, the course then moves into the realms of leadership, change, learning and strategy. Here students develop an understanding of leadership theory and practice, the means by which change is initiated and supported, the methods for creating, disseminating and applying knowledge, and the theory and application of holistic, systemic and non-linear thinking. The final phase of the course focuses specifically on the knowledge and skills required to integrate the demands of maintaining internal stability within the organisation and adaptive capability in the external environment.
The learning goals associated with this course are to: acquire knowledge of leadership theory and practice; develop leadership skills; develop skills in analytical methods and modelling techniques based on complexity theory ; examine organisational adaptation from the perspective of strategy, change and learning; develop theoretical knowledge of individual, group and organisational behaviour and performance; develop skills in self-analysis, learning and self-management.
