Module overview

Semester 1

Half of the module is taught over a weekend, and is a kinaesthetic learning experience for you to learn how to become effective team workers. This first part of the module aims to equip you with some knowledge of the softer team skills as well as task skills that exist in teams in the 21st century workplace. The module is completely experiential and aims to give you a broad experience of how to communicate in teams, motivate others, perform tasks under time pressure, make decisions, plan and negotiate, allocate roles, as well as becoming effective leaders. Assessment includes observations throughout the teams' weekend performance and a team presentation.

Semester 2 – half of the module provides opportunity to bring together, apply and explore business principles learnt in many other compulsory modules, and the soft group skills practised in Semester 1 of the module. This half of the module encourages innovation and creativity through interactive competition between and within groups via a comprehensive simulation of a fast moving business environment.
