Description Workplace interactions are dynamic, fluid and responsive to changing economic, social, political and technological circumstances. Adopting a critical approach, the focus is on the concerns of managers and workers in their day-to-day interactions. Participants will explore the impact of organisational and socio-economic change on organisation stakeholders with emphasis on the impact of the new forms of work and technology, economic developments, workforce diversity, and cross-cultural communication. Dynamics equips business students with the ability to analyse and address a changing business environment, appropriate for careers in Australia and internationally.
