The management role is examined with a focus on topics such as leadership, change, assessment, learning, development, cross-cultural issues, human resource management, and well-being at work. Management responses to the many aspects of organisational life and the effect and psychological impact of these are examined with a view to improving organisational success. The course aims to offer conceptual frameworks and principles to help participants to understand and manage efficiently and effectively in their own work settings.
