Content

The unit will develop students capacity to think strategically about an organisation, its industry and competitive position.  Linked with core units, this unit provides the opportunity to understand and apply the tools of strategy to identify priorities for management decision-making, and develop coherent and aligned operational and implementation plans that contribute to organisational goals in a dynamic and culturally diverse business environment. Financial, statistical and analytical skills will be used to evaluate alternative courses of action, resourcing issues and implications, and students will be required to explain and justify their decisions. Individually and as a team students will identify, develop, and reflect on their capability to formulate and implement organisational strategy.
