About this Unit
Please note that this unit is no longer on offer. Please contact business.courses@uws.edu.au or phone (02) 9685 9200 for further information. The aim of this unit is to provide students with a thorough grasp of the complex relationships between power, politics and knowledge in organisational settings. It also highlights the need for managers to use power ethically and equitably in workplaces. These aims are addressed through an examination of a range of theories of power, and topics such as: distribution and exercise of power in organisations, organisational politics, gender and power, language and power, resistance to power, and others. Innovative class activities and assessment methods (e.g., brainstorming; storytelling; film analysis) are used in this unit to ensure that students are able to effectively apply theoretical concepts to real life situations.
