Organisational and Management Processes
The module is an introduction to a vast and multifaceted area of enquiry. The module will examine theories of organisation and their application and usefulness to schools and educational and training organisations, organisational communication, organisational structure, hierarchy, collegiality, cultures, motivation, morale, authority, power, political behaviour and conflict and organisational change. These perspectives are universal features of organisational life. An understanding of these perspectives is important to becoming an effective manager/leader.
