What you will learn?

Responding to the Changing Business Environment :
Change is constant in global organisations. This unit examines the socio-economic environment, the way in which markets operate and the relationship between business and governments to gain an understanding of the way roles change among businesses, governments and their citizens. You will learn how to assess opportunities and threats that arise from change.
Business Models and Growing Organisations:
Managing a new or smaller growth organisation sometimes requires flexibility and creativity. In this unit you will learn how small businesses grow, reasons for success and how to assess and manage growth opportunities.
Understanding customer expectations and implementing strategies for meeting and exceeding them define business success in most industries. You will learn current approaches to excellent service definition and delivery.
Effective Decision Making :
With the growth of IT and customisation, few decisions are straightforward enough to rely on answers that have been successful in the past. With so much information readily available, effective managers need to develop decision making processes and skills that take advantage of all resources available to them. This unit equips you with the means to manage the decision-making process effectively.
Risk Management and Organisations :
An important component of managing change is understanding the risk associated with various opportunities. This unit will prepare you to understand business risk, risk management and innovation and creativity.
Business Development :
Learn how to successfully launch a new business, product or service by working in teams to refine an idea, research demand and market opportunities as well as competitive aspects and create a strategic operational plan.
