The topic aims to assist participants to think strategically on a domestic and international scale on a sustainable level. The topic also requires you to think about how an organisation functions from the top management, considering the way in which an organisation coordinates and integrates sustainable policies, which includes social, economic, environmental and ethical. Sustainable management policies are not confined to profit-making business organisations, nor only to the organisation as a whole. The concepts are useful also for not-for-profit (NFP) or non-government organisations (NGOs) as well as for organisational sub-units and individual career planning. Participants will review case studies and draw on their own knowledge from work experience to assess sustainability practices involving social, environmental, ethical and economic issues within organisations.
This topic aims to introduce participants to the analysis of sustainable management which considers the 'triple bottom line' in organisational planning and implementation. The major areas for consideration are the social, environmental, ethical and economic performance issues that make claim to an organisation's sustainable practice. The topic is designed to develop and sharpen your analytical management skills in applying the basic fundamentals of sustainable management practices to selected organisations within a multitude of industries.
