Innocation for Powerful Outcomes (Innovate)
Innovation involves transformative thinking and the genuine ability to cultivate and pick the lucrative fruits of our creative labour. In this course, you will develop an appreciation for a range of tools and concepts that can help make innovation happen. This course will feature original content and fresh thinking. It contains a stimulating mix of creative experiments, intriguing innovation examples, practical tools and robust concepts. These will help you induce creativity, gain deep customer insights, and develop an appreciation for creating a compelling innovation strategy.

Leadership: Identity, Influence and Power (LEAD)
Leadership; Identity, Influence and Power, examine the recent research in social psychology and business to provide you with the practical guidelines and actions that will help you develop and sustain your leadership.To understand why leadership is so popular a topic we begin with a close examination of the “Romance of Leadership” – the myths of leadership and the tendency to misattribute organisational outcomes to great leadership. We’ll also look at the history and underpinnings of much leadership theorising to understand the ideas of power, authority and charisma.In later modules we explore the dominant leadership theories and the need for a new approach to leadership. Under this new psychology of leadership – also known as the Social Identity theory of Leadership – we uncover 4 rules for leadership built upon an understanding of group psychological processes rather than the individual psychology of leaders.We conclude with the key skills and practices of leadership – skills and practices that you can learn and perfect. To help you with this, you will work on your own leadership development plan.

Management for a Competitive Edge (MgtEdge)

In Management for a Competitive Edge, you’ll learn about what makes a good manager, how to perform in different organisational environments and cultures, management tools and strategies you can use in your life and career, and the principles of leadership, teamwork, and communication. You’ll also build the knowledge you need to study more specialised areas of management.

Negotiation and Conflict Resolution
Whether you realise it or not, you negotiate and resolve conflict every day. This course introduces you to a way of thinking about Negotiation and Conflict Resolution that will give you renewed confidence.This course provides you with an introduction to negotiation and conflict resolution from both an academic perspective and also from a practical or ‘skills’ based perspective. There are discussion boards which give you an opportunity to delve deeper into the issues with other people taking the course and also assessment items for you to undertake to help you recall key points along the way and to reinforce the learning. You will also receive some practical tips – negotiation ‘do’s and don’ts’, so you can continue to build on your skills in negotiation and conflict resolution after the course is complete.

Principle of Project Management (ProjMgt)

Learn to manage a project from start to finish, including popular standards and processes and how to manage stakeholders. Understand the role of a project manager and learn how to plan work and execute.

Strategic Management (StratMgt)
Strategic management is one of the most important “hard skills” in business management. In Strategic Management, you’ll learn how you can manage businesses and projects proactively with a focus on long-term strategy, rather than reacting to day-to-day hiccups. In this course, you’ll learn about the role of strategic management in running a business, the difference between defensive and aggressive business strategies, taking a strategic position and recommending a strong business strategy. You’ll also learn how to incorporate factors like competitor behaviour and market movements into your decision making.
