UG Coursework Unit
Level of learning
MNG00111 Fundamentals of Management
This unit introduces students to the theory and practice of managing organisations in today's globally competitive business environment. This is achieved by examining the management function from a competing values (CV) framework. Through this model, four contrasting perspectives on organisational effectiveness are emphasised. Students will subsequently learn how to balance and blend the various management competencies associated with each perspective.
- Introduction to management and the CV model
- Module 1: Rational Goal - productivity and profitability
- Module 2: Internal Process - stability and continuity
- Module 3: Human Relations - commitment and cohesion
- Module 4: Open Systems - change and adaptability
- Management mastery.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
