MANT101 Managing for Performance

MANT101 replaces BSNS105.

Course Outline: MANT101 - Semester 2 2017 (PDF, 442KB)

This paper facilitates student learning about human interaction in the workplace. The tutorials are practice-oriented in order to allow students the opportunity to improve their skills in:

  • Self-Awareness
  • Interacting with Others
  • Working in Teams
  • Dealing with Conflict
  • Solving Problems Collectively
  • Providing Feedback to Others
  • Leading Others

This will be taught in conjunction with understanding how organisations operate, and how critical talent is managed. Additionally, the paper provides the opportunity to practice written and oral communication skills, with a major written assignment, major presentation, and ad hoc participation during the tutorials.

The paper has a one-hour lecture and a two hour tutorial every week. Due to the importance of the tutorials, they will be taught by academic staff members (senior lecturers and associate professors currently assigned).

This paper is a must for those who will be working and interacting with people in their future careers.
