BUILDING STRATEGIC ORGANISATIONAL PARTNERSHIPS
Credit points: 30
In this subject students investigate and assess core principles, concepts and ideologies associated with building strategic organisational partnerships across diverse organisations such as NGOs, public and private enterprises, community corporations, government departments and institutions, and inter-agency alliances and companies. Students utilise a cross-disciplinary approach to examine the multiplier effects which strategic partnerships have on organisational partnering, and their potential to make organisations work in a more creative, cost effective, and synergistic environment. Students review a number of organisational partnership theories, including systems theory, complexity theory, network theory and change theory, which should be applied to analyse and critique the constructs of negotiations, shared vision, building networks, organisational change, strategic management, participative leadership, and problem solving. The locus of emphasis is on students acquiring critical reflective and cross-organisational skills to effectively advance the organisation towards pre-defined strategic goals.
