This subject will examine the underlying assumptions of different models related to the study and management of contemporary organisations with an emphasis on understanding links between theory and practice. Subject content will include an introduction to differing images or metaphors of organisations. Different organisational images emphasise issues such as managing organisations as effective (and ineffective) systems, removing structures of domination, releasing human potential, and understanding the importance of social construction processes. The implications of these differing perspectives will be discussed in terms of classic and current approaches to core topics such as structure, power, culture, leadership and change.
A 2-hour examination (60%) and class assignment(s) totalling not more than 3000 words (40%).
