Cross-Cultural Management

Module description

Management refers to the coordination of work activities that help to accomplish the goals of an organization. In this course, you will explore the various functions of management. Management involves not only coordination, but also planning, organizing, leading, and controlling. Historically, managerial functions have come to include a range of activities, which include staffing and human resource management, employee skills development, directing, reporting, recruitment, and organisational culture setting.


In today’s competitive business environment, organisations often rely upon the delegation of responsibilities and authority to autonomous teams in order to help the organisation to achieve its goals. This course will help students to better understand organisational behaviour and the impact these changes have had on managers and organisations. As a result, today's managers now speak in terms of "leading" or "guiding" people, rather than giving instructions for every action.
