On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
  • Describe and apply foundational managerial concepts skills and complex business environments
  • Work together effectively in diverse teams
  • Design creative solutions to management problems and advocate for their implementation
  • Identify and describe how managers monitor the effectiveness of employees, work groups, and organisations
