Effective administration is a key component of successful and sustainable business. In this course, students will learn the about the ways in which we classify and administer the various roles and aspects of the work conducted within the organisation by exploring the diversity of ideas and approaches to the study of work. This exploration includes the examination of the context of work, the ways in which work is carried out and issues pertinent to the management of work. Students will consider the evolution of administrative management as a contemporary manifestation of scientific management, its historical antecedent. All managers, irrespective of their specialist expertise, need a sound understanding of a range of administrative functions and, since most administrative functions are conducted indoors, an appreciation of the required features of an effective office environment including the virtual workplace. The importance of time management, problem solving ability, efficient workflow and an appreciation of cultural diversity are emphasised throughout the course. Having completed this course, students should be able to plan and organise a range of administrative functions in support of an organisation's operations.
