Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper explores the world of management and provides a realistic introduction to the essential functions of management. It reviews the manager's role in organisations today, together with an understanding of how managers and firms need to adapt to an ever-changing environment. Using the case teaching method, students develop a critical awareness that in every situation, issue, or problem, managing is a mixture of artful and scientific decision-making that requires the application of analytical and interpersonal skills.

This is a FLEXI paper which means the teaching is delivered on campus but is set up so a student can complete the paper without attending in person, including tests. It is offered face to face and in FLEXI mode which means the lecture and tutorial will be available via Zoom (these will be recorded).

There will be no Zoom lectures or tutorials (fully online) offered in Tauranga, students will need to enroll in SMTGT101-21B (HAM).

Students will be able to make a choice in Moodle whether they will participate in the course face to face or online. However, If a student selects 'online' they are expected to join a group, communicate with the lecturer and tutor regularly and participate. If the student wishes to change their choice once the trimester has begun, they will need to email the Convenor for approval.

If you have any questions please email neihana.jacob@waikato.ac.nz
