The social and environmental challenge for contemporary business organisations and institutions drives change in a powerful way. The competing logics across internal and external stakeholder groups give rise to a need for new organizational forms that embrace competing views and depend on co-creation and social partnerships. The political and economic backdrop to these dynamic settings is a direct influence on business ventures. The balance between environmental sustainability, social impact, value creation and traditional performance measures brings about a new dynamic for leaders who in turn, are redefining the meaning of success.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
This course synthesises theory and philosophy in ethics, corporate responsibility and governance to provide a range of conceptual frameworks and models from which to evaluate, analyse and critically re-shape organisational culture, processes and resources. The business-society and business-environment interfaces form the focal points of study in this course and students are expected to challenge and debate political economy, social and environmental impacts, co-creation and value propositions within a reframed version of contemporary enterprise. The course is applied to all industrial, public and third sector settings.
