Behaviour in Organisations - BUS815

In an increasingly globalized and competitive business environment, an organisation’s people can be a valuable source of sustained competitive advantage. However, this is largely determined by the manner in which people are managed and led. This unit aims to enhance student knowledge of the ways people behave in organisations and the skills required to effectively manage them. Organisations constantly face issues involving motivation, performance, and teamwork making leadership and organisational behaviour skills important for managers and non-managers alike.

This unit is about people in organisations, focusing on how management and leadership practices affect the attitudes, motivation, behaviour, and performance of employees and teams. Unit content is derived mostly from contemporary theory, research, and practice in the organisational behaviour and management disciplines. Students will be encouraged to use unit material to be self-aware and mindful about how they lead and interact with others, and to adopt an ethic of continuous self-improvement in their leadership, teamwork, and interpersonal skills.
