Course goals

Global and local organisations are under ever-present pressure to maximise productivity and to optimise costs. The organisational complexities are magnified by disruptive technology, geopolitics, regulations, and ongoing race to acquire and to retain the top talent. The purpose of this course is to provide a basic knowledge of factors that influence people's behaviours in organisations, to improve self-understanding and understanding of other people/teams within an organisation, since there is no organisation without people. During this course students will address the key themes of the subject material: an individual’s career development and performance management, high-performing team dynamics, diversity and inclusion topics, and other organisational factors via theoretical, practical discussions and group work projects.
