What this paper is about

Edit What this paper is about Content
Managing Strategically is designed as an applied integrative approach to strategy emphasising the current strategic issues of business and modern approaches to resolving them. In a world of uncertainty how should modern businesses best deal with the talent crunch, supply chain issues, digital transformation, potentially conflicting sustainability and growth pressures and other complex challenges. The process and mindset of strategy are critical to enhance the likelihood of success. We combine conceptual models of strategy with guest speakers and cases to elaborate, explain and tackle a balanced approach to modern strategy making. Fundamental to this paper are themes of incomplete information, engagement, integration, iteration, inclusion and enactment. The changes and future scenarios that you developed in MNMGT515 will form part of the background to the development of strategy in this course and MNMGT516 will aid global strategy elements.

How this paper will be taught

Edit How this paper will be taught Content
This course is run as a flexi paper so all class materials, workshops and guest speakers will be available online. Ideally students, if not attending face-to-face, will be able to watch workshops online synchronously so as to be able to engage in the interactive nature of class. It is possible there will be an opportunity for a field trip to one of the companies we will explore in the course. There are no tutorials. Each workshop will be split in thirds approximately to discuss new concepts, a guest speaker and a case.
