Description This unit comprises three modules that focus on quality management, risk management, and performance measurement and benchmarking. The quality systems module explores quality management principles, systems, and frameworks, and the role that quality management plays in creating customer value, improving competitiveness and enhancing organisational effectiveness. The risk management module examines the important risks that need to be managed by businesses, especially in a global business setting, and introduces common frameworks that can be used to develop risk management strategies. The performance measurement and benchmarking module elaborates upon the evolution of performance measurement frameworks and introduces approaches that can be used by businesses to assess the status of their business processes and enhance performance through benchmarking. It will draw upon the concepts and theories covered in the quality and risk management modules. All three modules incorporate aspects related to economic, social and environmental responsibility. Students are required to study all three modules.
