Social and Political Environment of Business

A clear understanding of the environment of the firm, especially of the political economic milieu, the relationship between government, business and society, and trends in national strategy within the context of international political economy trends, is an imperative for the strategically-minded general manager.

The unit is designed to help managers identify a broad range of stakeholders in the environment of the firm with a view to enhancing the capacity for managing relationships with these stakeholders.

Organisational Learning

In a rapidly changing world, the ability to stay alive and continue to grow is largely a function of  an organisational climate that allows the rate of learning in the firm that is equal to or greater than the pace of change in the environment. The sessions consider these culture issues and the ladders of human development in firms.

Business Strategy
Business Strategy sessions using the case study approach emphasize the unique leadership role (often referred to as the helicopter view) of the Chief Executive as the strategist with practical examples of situations where the strategy process is either planned and directed or contingent and emergent.

Business Ethics
This course explores the fiduciary responsibilities of business executives and the responsibilities of business firms towards their main stakeholders.

Change Management

Change is an inevitable reality, yet people and organisations tend to resist change. The consequence is that such firms become unable to compete. The sessions consider the reasons why people resist change and what the generic approaches to change proactively are.

Business Law
This course helps executives to effectively deal with all kinds of commercial transactions in which they may accept personal or corporate liability. The course is designed to be practical. It will not and does not attempt to turn you into corporate lawyers. It should however raise your awareness of certain issues that are relevant to business so that you can react knowledgeably when faced with certain situations or problems, and make decisions required of you as managers. Instead of viewing law as that which constrains the executive, this course will seek to explain how legally astute executives can help shape the legal environment in which they do business and embrace the tools and opportunities the law offers to manage their businesses more effectively. The end result should be an increase in the executive's ability to use the law strategically. This will be manifested in their ability to use intellectual property protection to maximize intangible assets; preserve brand equity; manage disputes, deal effectively with labour relations, etc.
