Description Innovation and Professional Practice uses design thinking to develop participants' capacity to innovate across a range of changing organisational environments and future-oriented work roles. Networking, collaboration and team work around contemporary projects will develop the attitudes and abilities characteristic of ways that professionals lead and contribute to innovation in many contexts. The unit builds on study of organisation and leadership in the Bachelor of Business, and develops participants' innovative thinking through the prism of business acumen. The unit supports work integrated learning approaches that will enable participants to develop portfolio evidence of their professional capacity to lead and participate in sustainable business change.
