Teaching

  • MNB320 Organisational Behaviour 2

    This module reads organisations through the use of metaphor. Organisations will be viewed through different lenses to highlight the relationship between individuals and organisations. In doing so, core features and processes of organisation are analysed through different metaphors: machines, organisms, brains, cultures, political systems, psychic prisons, flux and transformation, and domination. The benefits and challenges of reading and analyzing organizations through metaphor will be discussed. Fundamental and contemporary theories will be drawn on to interrogate the practices of organizational life – past and present.
