From an Organisational Behaviour and Management perspective, management is the process of organising the people who make up an organisation, to ensure that the organisation's goals are accomplished. This course is therefore about `people' management. The course will expose you to a series of foundation theories about people's behaviour within organisations that should give you some insight into how best to manage yourself and others in the work environment. The first part of the course focuses on self-leadership or self-management and gives you a chance to think about how you should approach planning your career over the period of your study. The second part of the course gives you some useful background information about the nature of management within organisations and the nature of structure and culture as organisational systems. The third part of the course focuses on the management of others as individuals within organisations. Specifically it looks at the contribution of individual's personalities, values, attitudes and motivation to their work within organisations. The final section of the course focuses on the management of others as groups and teams and covers topics such as communication, conflict, politics and power.
