The course examines how the global business environment is shaped, how it influences business activity in the international arena, and considers the corporate capabilities needed to participate in international business.
    • People Organisations and Leadership
    • The unifying theme of the course is to identify many of the factors that influence performance at work. Performance occurs at 3 levels - individual, team and organisational. All of the topics introduced in this course are selected because they infleunce performance at one or more of these levels. And while many of the concepts we address in this course may seem obvious to you, even common sense to some, none is common practice. We therefore will explore discrepancies between what you think you know, what you do, and what actually works. Our goal is to close these gaps by identifying what to do, how to do it, and why.
