Aims and objectives

This unit concentrates on developing students' understanding of their own ability to lead and manage an enterprise as it moves through stages of growth. Without this awareness of self, students limit their opportunities to create successful enterprises; to form strategic alliances; and to progress their business to its full potential.
Addressing the dynamics of growth that need to be managed, with a particular emphasis on managing human capital. Students will develop an appreciation of the power of organisational culture to enable or impede growth and performance, and an understanding that culture develops whether or not it is actively managed or nurtured.
These dynamics of growth apply whether growth is from small to large, young to mature, private to public, shareholders to stakeholders, simple to complex, potential loss to realised profit, risky to secure.
