Synopsis

Strategic management is concerned with creating organisations that create value to all stakeholders in a turbulent world. This unit integrates material from earlier units in the MBA degree, in particular from marketing, accounting, operations, individual and organisational behaviour, information technology and finance within a strategic framework. On completion of the unit students should be able to understand the key influences on the development of an organisation's strategy, analyse those influences, propose appropriate strategic behaviour for an organisation and demonstrate an understanding of how strategic change can occur within an organisation.

Objectives

The learning goals associated with this unit are to:

  • integrate the key influences on strategy, both external and internal
  • critically analyse the concepts and tools of strategic management
  • recommend a strategy for a firm
  • further enhance communication, inter-personal, problem solving and critical thinking capabilities.
