21875 Managing People for High Performance

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



This subject focuses on the effective management of people in organisations. The subject draws on concepts from leadership theory and practice, organisational behaviour, human resource management and psychology, to provide students with an understanding of the complexities and dynamics of successful people management. The subject also refers to the institutional context of people management and contextualises the material with reference to the rights and responsibilities of managers and staff.

Core issues upon which managerial and organisational success hinge, such as job design, setting performance objectives, providing feedback, managing performance, guiding development and ensuring staff are rewarded for good performance, are central topics in this subject. Effectively driving these processes requires knowledge and competencies of the personalities, values and attitudes of staff and these topics are also covered. This subject is designed to help students develop into better leaders, managers and organisation members.
