This course provides a framework for studying the principles of management in organisations and its application in practice, particularly in the context of construction organisations. Management is the process of planning, organising, leading and controlling the work of organisational members and the use of available resources to achieve specific goals effectively and efficiently. The course focuses on how organisations are structured appropriately to the needs of the market, how leadership provides organisation vision and overall direction and how managers play a role in utilise an organisation’s resources (people, processes, systems and tools) for success. In addition, contemporary issues relating to management and the construction industry are explored. During the course, management principles are discussed during lectures and reinforced by interactive class discussion. Exercises, including formal assessments which relate to realistic management case studies, are used to support the learning aims.
