260700 Strategy and Negotiation

Requisite(s): 48 credit points of completed study in spk(s): C04444 Master of Business Administration



Tomorrow's leaders are required to be skilled in navigating through competing demands from stakeholders and able to make sense of the fast-moving changes in their environment. In order to deliver sustainable performance they also need to understand and exploit their organisation's capabilities (including core competencies and culture) to lead and develop strategy and implement strategic plans.

This is a capstone subject in which students must take an executive management perspective drawing on relevant technical and functional knowledge already gained (e.g. accounting, financial, marketing) to develop logical, implementable strategies and plans. Doing this subject not only equips students with critical strategic thinking skills but also gives them valuable experience (required of future executives) in considering the consequences of their decisions, including implementation challenges, and how to align key stakeholders.

This subject is designed to move beyond basic strategy concepts and processes and to give students a direct experience in understanding some of the challenges of strategy development.
