People Management

Module code: HRMG 2205

Module description

People Management introduces non-specialist students to the core debates that exist around the management of people within work and organisational contexts, specifically those pertaining to the studies of Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management. This module will take a critical and reflective perspective by encouraging students to adopt a variety of theoretical lenses to examine the inherent complexity of people management in both classical and contemporary work contexts. There is an emphasis on appreciating the legacy of classical management theory in forging our social and organisational worlds as we know them today and a consideration of how we might want to know them in the future. A key feature of this module will be the integrated use of film, most notably throughout the tutorial programme. For non-specialist students film will provide them with the vicarious experiences pertaining to people management in a variety of contexts that they might not otherwise have.
