  • MN-3572 Enterprise Life Cycle

    Enterprises are often referred to as being `born¿ or `dying¿, being `early¿ or `mature`. Much of management theory derives from the study of two stages. The mature, large firms or enterprise start-up. This module will investigate the ways in which the life stages of the enterprise influence the ways in which we can apply theories or practice to them. This module will enable learners to critically analyse an enterprise using the full panoply of theories and practices from entrepreneurship and management and apply these to enterprises at different stages in their lifecycle as well as to diagnose when an enterprise is moving between these stages and to use this in order to inform strategy and its execution. Throughout the module, critical evaluation of theory will be complemented by real life cases, the methods of evaluating them as well as the skills and behaviours required by those whose role is to work in and/or support enterprises. This module is suitable for any student with an ambition to work with enterprises. Whether small, medium or large, whether in the private or public sector, an enterprise is `any entity taking part in an economic activity¿. This module will allows students to conceptualise how the theory, skills and behaviours introduced from their previous modules can be applied to enterprises in practice.
