20 Credits AUTUMN

Pre-requisites: MGT231


Aims/Description: This module will introduce students to strategy practice and the process by which strategies and performance are realized. It seeks to enhance their understanding of the theories and frameworks in the area of strategy formation and strategic change. Students will be able to learn why, and how organizations perform and maintain the ability to perform. Students will be introduced to various strategy formation theories and frameworks and learn how these can be used to understand how and why organizations perform or underperform, to be able to suggest interventions by which organizations can be changed. Based on a sound understanding of the theories, students will be required to apply the concepts through the appreciation of case evidence and the suggestion of appropriate interventions.
