Your main study themes are:
**Managing People:** One of the fundamental concepts in leadership and management is the management of people. This includes getting the most from employees within the organisation in a supporting manner, leading, motivating and encouraging staff to willingly contribute to the growth and improved quality of the organisation.
**Managing Operations:** Responsible for establishing the how, where, when and why, you will understand the art of delivering the best outcomes and processes of operation. You will acknowledge the effectiveness of efficiency within an organisation and look at different work practices such as lean and agile operations and organisational methods required to achieve this.
**Management Resources:** This includes the control and operation of budgets and financial reserves and the infrastructure required to deliver necessary outputs in time and to sufficient quality. Avoiding resource waste and ensuring the maximum return on investment is paramount to successful managers.
**Managing Information:** Decision making is fundamental to the success of a manager. Faced with substantial amounts and a variety of information on a daily basis, it is important that managers are able to make effective decisions quickly. This can only be done if the manager has an effective way of managing and being able to assess accurately the information that they receive.
**Managing Self:** Personal management requires determination, effort, high quality personal organisation, skills essential for successful and competent managers to deliver results. Developing rigorous and effective self-organisation skills are qualities valued by all employers.
