Business environments are always in a state of flux and constant change, but that has perhaps never been more apparent than at the current time.
Businesses and organisations need to adapt to profound change, new economic realities and to develop a higher level of agility in how they structure, manage and run their business.
There is no question that in the current climate managers need to ‘manage at the speed of change’, at the edge of chaos and uncertainty.
This course invites existing and potential future managers to reassess the role of the manager in these unprecedented times and to develop the knowledge and skills required to be an agile manager of the future. It will critically evaluate the extent to which existing organisation and business structures and strategy models are still fit for purpose in the new economic and business world that is emerging and will critically assess the value of existing leadership and management theories as effective tools for leading and managing businesses of the future.
Whilst it is undoubtedly the case that finance is at the core of any business and many jobs are being automated, people (and in particular ‘people managers’) still drive businesses, and ignoring best practice people management principles has frequently been found to make the difference between a successful and an unsuccessful business.
Thus it will also critically appraise the role of human resource management and employee relations practices in the ‘lean’ organisations of the future with a particular focus on the behaviors that managers will need to exhibit to successfully lead, inspire and, most importantly, motivate the teams they manage to continuously raise the performance bar.
