Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management - BUSI97189
The focus of this module is on developing your understanding of modern organisations 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 organisations best prepared to succeed in the competitive global marketplace are those that engender full participation and promote teamwork through enabling leadership.
The study of organisational behaviour involves examining processes at the individual, group and organisational 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.
