Organisation amplifies the leadership intent. Orchestrating the interaction between individuals, sections, organisational structures and culture to align with the organisation strategy and achieve its purpose, requires a detailed understanding of the system. In addition to direct influence, a leader needs to know how to use and influence the organisation’s culture and processes, to manage its interdependencies and develop its people. In our dynamic work-world mobilising staff knowledge and passion, and supporting the learning needed to adjust to changes, is critical to remaining viable. Effective administrative structures, policies and processes can amplify the leader’s intent, or block initiative. In this course we will examine the key influences and perspectives on the management of organisations, and tools to enhance ethical decision-making. The focus is primarily on human issues that affect and are dealt with by managers day-to-day. The ability to analyse and to think clearly and independently about these issues is the basis of effective management action. Throughout the course there is an emphasis on thinking about and asking important questions, rather than fixing on 'right' answers.
