Details

This paper is about the theory and practice of the management of people and their behaviour in organisations, from entry, to motivation, relationships, contributions, expectations, and exit.

MANT 250 Managing People is designed to provide the foundational knowledge to enable you to understand and manage people and their behaviour within organisations. Therefore, the key objective is to integrate behavioural concepts (how people behave) with functional people-management processes (how people are managed procedurally). This paper builds understanding of key concepts by:

  1. Integrating theoretical concepts with workplace practice
  2. Exposing you to a variety of perspectives and viewpoints related to people and behaviour in the workplace
