Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
You will be provided with responsive, engaging and interactive online learning materials which will include a general introduction to the topic, how to study the module online, together with core academic theory relating to the topic. You will also be directed to a variety of electronic sources including e-books, e-journals and other web-based resources, to support your learning. A mix of activities such as reflective exercises, case studies and self-assessment questions (with diagnostic feedback) for each unit will help to engage you in the learning process, and the online materials will encourage you to reflect on your own experiences and learning. You will also be encouraged to form your own independent groups and to interact via the VLE through discussion forums.

Description of module content:

The material covered in the module relates to two broad areas of study: the examination of organisational behaviour, including attitudes, perception, motivation, groups, teams and leadership; and understanding managerial processes, and the development of skills important in the management of people and processes - such as corporate social responsibility. Change management is increasingly important and therefore you will examine the topic by looking at both incremental and transformational change, and the importance of power, politics and conflict.

Focusing on the behaviour of people in a work environment, the module places an emphasis on understanding the vital role and importance of people in the change management process. You will develop an understanding of the dynamics of working organisations in a rapidly evolving business environment, specifically the significance of organisational culture. This in turn develops your ability to plan and carry forward sustainable system-wide change programmes.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Apply organisational behaviour theory to the business context.
LO2: Critically analyse the factors influencing individual behaviour in organisations.
LO3: Evaluate the nature, role and tasks of people management and identify effective management practice and skills.
LO4: Identify and analyse trends in transformational change management in organisations.
LO5: Illustrate through analysis and synthesis a robust understanding of International Leadership, management theories and concepts.
