This module introduces the students to the challenges of organisation and leadership that are shaped by ongoing changes at work and in today's society at large. The purpose is to examine past and new approaches and draw relevant connections between organisational theory and practice, where issues of organisation, collaboration and leadership are given particular attention. The module will emphasise the principal role of people and human behaviour alongside the study of management systems and models. The module will address organisational processes by examining the conditions for developing sustainable organisational strategies and viable leadership approaches in both the private and the public sectors. Finally, the module will examine critically organisation and cooperation as socially accomplished activities of individuals, teams, and communities as well as projects in emerging contexts.
