This unit will build your understanding as active, knowledgeable and critical thinkers in the field of organisational theory. You will develop skills, capacities and attitudes that will enable you to contribute to workplace discussions and processes concerned with organisations in historical, contemporary and future contexts. This unit provides a range of conceptual tools that challenge you to look at organisations from different perspectives. As employees or consultants, you will gain a greater understanding of organisations and a greater sense of what they do. As a learner you will be encouraged to engage in dialogue to explore the hidden assumptions of organisational theory and its translation into practice.
