This postgraduate subject explores the phenomenon of organisational leadership within a global knowledge economy dominated by a revolution in information and communication technology (ICT). Its focus is on the leadership practices that generate the intangible capital resources (ICRs) required for success in this knowledge economy; in particular those practices that build a social environment characterised by strong relationships and committed, focused endeavour. In the development and leveraging of these ICRs, and the relationships that generate them, critical practices around the management of power are identified and explored. Furthermore, the subject attempts to develop in students appropriate theoretical and conceptual frames of reference and knowledge bases for the mastery of such practices.
