This subject introduces some major theoretical approaches to leading and managing in complex and changing workplaces. The subject will focus on the university as a workplace where managers play various roles in different institutional domains, characterised by the university’s mission, administrative systems, multi-professional staffing, and resource requirements as a corporate entity.
At the completion of the subject, participants will be able to:
Hurdle task: A 15 minute class presentation during the semester (equivalent to 1000 words) reviewing one or two pre-selected texts from the reading list.
Attendance at all classes (tutorial/seminars/practical classes/lectures/labs) is obligatory. Failure to attend 80% of classes will normally result in failure in the subject.
