The subject enables students to understand and improve their own managerial and organisational practice by introducing them to the ideas associated with established theories of organising and emergent theories of practice in organisation studies. The subject reviews the key concepts and issues that inform debates on contemporary organising and allows students to develop reflective perspectives on these as they are relevant to their own work. Following an introduction to the theory and practice of organising, the subject is divided into two main parts: concepts and issues. The key concepts that are discussed include organisational structure, organisational culture, organisational power and organisational responsibility. The key issues for practice that are discussed are organisational change and identity, gendered organisations and diversity, cross-cultural organising, management and organisational fads and fashions, anti-corporate movements and globalisation, and corporate social responsibility and sustainability.
