An organisational behaviour course for the people behind a business

Available from 30 September 

The aim of the People, Work and Organisations course is for students to develop a detailed appreciation of factors influencing how people behave at work and how these link to performance

The course focuses on understanding individual differences, how these differences affect group dynamics and how organisational factors affect individual behaviour. At its core, the course aims to equip students with the skills and knowledge to positively impact on individual, team and organisational performance in a variety of dynamic organisational contexts.

Topics include:

Understanding behaviour in organisations 
Individual differences
Motivation and engagement
Work group dynamics
Power, politics and conflicts
Designing effective organisations
Organisational culture
Organisational change 

The course concludes with a detailed case study that allows students to draw on their knowledge of organisational behaviour and recommend interventions to improve performance. Throughout the course, students are encouraged to think critically about their role as managers and to reflect on their practice in light of relevant theory.  

We look at how ideas are being applied currently in organisations, but also look at future trends.
