Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management - BUSI96020
The focus of this module is on developing your understanding of modern organizations and the tools you will need to contribute effectively in them. Much of your success as leaders, managers, and professionals will depend on how well you work with and get things done through others. The organizations best prepared to succeed in the competitive global marketplace are those that engender full participation and promote teamwork through enabling leadership.
The study of organizational behaviour involves examining processes at the individual, group and organizational levels. The module design reflects these three levels of inquiry. Both theoretical and applied approaches will be developed. Theory development will be based on class lectures, discussion, class activities and assigned readings. While I will take a large share of the responsibility for theory development, I expect extensive class participation for the applications part. Hence, the module will feature a substantial amount of class discussion and experiential exercises.
Organisational Behaviour - BUSI97087
Almost everything you will learn on the IHM course requires that you become good at managing people. As Mary Follet, one of the early pioneers of management thought put it in 1941, ”Management is the art of getting things done through people”. To get to grips with this art requires that you understand organisations and how they work, together with the complexities involved in managing people. It is the aim of this module to give you this understanding.
After providing you with an introductory overview, the module turns to look at individual processes, then moves up to the group level and concludes by considering processes at the organisational level.
