People and Organisations


This subject explores the relationship between organisations and individuals from the perspective of the individual at work. It seeks to provide a conceptual understanding of how an individual navigates work in an organisation, including working in teams, leading and motivating staff, organisational politics, and tackling power structures. Students learn an appreciation of the importance of equity, diversity and inclusion in the workplace as well as strategies for managing conflict and communication with internal and external stakeholders. Importantly, students will apply these concepts, and develop these skills, as they self-manage their studies and work in teams. Students develop resilience and a framework for how to manage and work successfully in all types of organisations in the future.
