Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Mainly individual work, but also lectures to support this

Intended learning outcomes

To present and discuss the many models of strategic management and to embed these into social and economic wholes, and further to show the connection between theory and praxis. Further still, to show the benefits of working with complex understandings of the socio-economic nexus in contemporary business practice, and the benefits of advanced theoretic understandings in developing strategy. Much of the course-work will consist of individual work with strategic cases, and a reflective practice of developing a personal approach to strategy-work.

After the course the student should be able to:

  • Describe and compare different perspective on organisations within business economy and leadership; structure, politics, human resource and symbolic perspective.
  • Describe the basic concepts within the perspectives mention above.
  • Use these concepts in an analysis of organisations and make a presentation
  • Use these concepts in an advanced discussion about business economy and leadership.
