This course provides an introduction to the study of individual and group behaviour in organisations. The course is taught in two parts. In the first part we examine individual-level topics such as personality differences; perception and learning in organisations; workplace emotions, theories of motivation; and stress management. We then move on to discuss team and organisational-level processes, including decision-making; group dynamics and teamwork; communication; power and conflict management; organisational structure and design; organisational culture; and organisational change.

IMPORTANT: The primary sources of course content in MGMT206 are lectures, the guided self-learning materials and the textbook. The textbook supports the lectures and guided self-learning activities by providing explanations and illustrations of concepts and theories. Engagement with content in lectures and the content in self-learning guides is very important. This content will determine the topics addressed in the assessment items (i.e., assignments and tests). The textbook provides further information to assist your understanding and allow you to answer questions well. We strongly advise you to purchase a textbook as the online copies available through the library are always in high demand. Do not rely on being able to access a library copy.
