SIEN5001: Foundation in Strategy, Innovation and Mgmt

This unit introduces students to essential knowledge, frameworks and tools to manage strategically and innovatively. The unit begins by providing students with a mindsets framework for managing responsibly and sustainably. The core concepts and central frameworks of strategic management are introduced and applied to current case studies. Students are then introduced to the complexity of innovation processes and models for assessing and maximising value for innovation. The concepts and frameworks from across the unit are then brought together as students explore the challenges of managing ethically and responsibly in complex environments.
