There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.
Anti-requisite(s): 21221 Organisational Structure and Change



This subject considers what is theory and what is theorising in the specific context of organisations and organisation theory. It covers both mainstream classical business theorising and some alternatives. This examination should lead to an understanding that theory and organisational reality interact, influencing and shaping each other. It then follows that the practising manager is informed by theory when defining issues, sense making and choosing practical action.
