BBA102: Principles of Management
Organisations bring people together to achieve what they could not achieve individually. This unit addresses two areas of interest to those wishing to understand their organisation or to pursue a career in management. One area is the nature of organisations, their construction and operation. This unit seeks to provide an understanding of the development of organisations and management; the context or environment of an organisation; what constitutes performance for an organisation; basic strategy at corporate and business levels; structure; operations management and quality; and sustainability. Some relevant areas are not covered as they are addressed in other units, specifically: marketing (e.g. MKTG101), human resource management (e.g. HRM107), advanced strategy (BBA350), and accounting (ACCG units). Another area is the development of skills that are valuable in one's career both as a student and professional. These skills are in the areas of research and researching; writing and presentation; working in teams; planning and organising; and thinking. This unit is presented in two distinct streams. The lecture stream consists of a series of lectures that loosely parallel the management component of the text. The tutorial stream addresses additional areas that either extend the lecture material or address issues too recent to be included in texts.
