This course provides a multi-disciplinary foundation for the study of people management, introducing key concepts and assumptions underpinning management practice, as well as contemporary debates in the area. In this course we consider people management from both macro and micro perspectives, drawing on key ideas in organisational behaviour and work and organisation theory.

We look at how management thinking and the nature of work have changed over time, and examine what this means for contemporary people management. We also consider how best to understand some of the drivers of effective work practices such as motivation, interpersonal behaviour, leadership and organisational culture. The topics in this course will provide you with a solid foundation for understanding and evaluating human resource management.
