This course introduces students to the knowledge and skills required to successfully manage organisations and people in a global economy, based on contemporary research and practice. The course is designed to provide strong foundations for the development of future organisational leaders and managers who will be able to successfully respond to complex and turbulent environments, promote and sustain competitive advantage, ensure ethical and social responsibility in business practice and decision making, and manage changing social, political and technological factors both inside and outside the organisation, in an increasingly global and diverse workplace. Topics include: the role of organisations in modern societies, sustainability and corporate social responsibility, the importance of organisational leadership, power and networks, sources of conflict, problem solving, group motivation and behaviour, as well as professional skills. 2.4 Course Aims and Relationship to Other Courses The aim of MGMT1001 is to provide you with an introduction to principles, practices, issues and debates that are relevant to the management of organisations. You will study concepts and theories that help explain the attitudes and behaviours of employees and managers. As a core course in the Bachelor of Commerce degree, the activities, materials and assessments have been designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop skills relevant to their studies and employment. MGMT1001 Managing Organisations and People 2 2.5 Student Learning Outcomes By the end of this course, you should be able to: Content outcomes: 1. explain the central role of organisations in society 2. evaluate the value and importance of the human side of organisations 3. describe the interconnections between individual(s), team(s) and organisation(s) 4. understand the language of organisations and management Skills outcomes: 5. acquire foundational academic research skills 6. demonstrate familiarity with the process of critical analysis 7. enhance your effectiveness in working in groups and teams 8. learn independently and assume responsibility for the learning process ASB Graduate Attributes This course contributes to your development of the following Australian School of Business Graduate Attributes, which are the qualities, skills and understandings we want you to have by the completion of your degree. ASB Graduate Attributes MGMT1001 Learning Outcomes Critical thinking and problem solving 1-4, 6 Communication 7 -8 Teamwork and leadership 7 Social, ethical and global perspectives 1 -4 In-depth engagement with relevant disciplinary knowledge 1 -4 Professional skills 4 -8 More information on the ASB Graduate Attributes and how they align with the UNSW Graduate Attributes (2010) is available on the ASB website (Learning and Teaching >Graduate Attributes). 3. LEARNING AND TEACHING ACTIVITIES 3.1 Approach to Learning and Teaching in the Course MGMT1001 has been designed to provide you with a complete learning experience that incorporates interactive teaching and learning and provides a strong foundation for successful studies in your Bachelor’s degree. We encourage student contributions, through discussion and questioning that draw upon your reading and life experiences. 3.2 Learning Activities and Teaching Strategies Role of Lectures The lectures provide a forum to introduce students to the main issues, theories and conceptual frameworks for each topic. Lecture notes for each week’s topic will be available on the course website on MGMT1001 Managing Organisations and People 3 the preceding Sunday. For example, the Week 4 lecture handout will be available to you on the Sunday before the lecture week. Role of the Tutorial The tutorials use a variety of experiential learning activities which encourage active engagement in the tutorials. The weekly tutorials provide you with an interactive environment to enhance your formal and informal learning in the course. The more conscientiously you participate, the more you will enjoy and learn from the tutorials. The tutorials also provide you with opportunities to improve important interpersonal skills by working with other students in groups and teams, building relationships and networks, and being exposed to the opinions and values of others. Role of Everest Simulation The Everest Simulation provides students with a hands-on experience of Groups and Teams concepts. Via the Everest Simulation, students will appreciate how individual attitudes and behaviours relate to group functioning – and gain a practical understanding of the influence of key topics central to effective teamwork (e.g., Communication, Leadership, Decision making, Conflict). 4.

MGMT1001 Managing Organisations and People 6 4.3.3 Individual Participation - 20% of final mark Tutorial Attendance and Participation: (5%) Preparation for, and active participation in, your lectures and seminars is a vital component of the learning in this subject and as such students who prepare and participate in the classroom will be rewarded. Participation may involve small group discussion, short informal presentations to the class, answ ering questions, participation in class discussion. Participation marks are based on the degree to which students make an informed contribution to class and small group discussion. Simply attending tutorials without getting involved in class discussion is of little value to you or your classmates and will result in a minimal participation mark. To be eligible for the Tutorial Attendance and Participation mark students must attend a minimum of eight (8) tutorials. Grading: Grade Description Mark Outstanding Contribution Attends 8 + tutorials and actively participates in both small group and class discussions. Contributions in class reflect thorough preparation. Provides good insights; has clear and thoughtful views; and supports and argues for but is open to modifying positions 4–5 Satisfactory Attends 8 + tutorials and participates in both small group and class discussions. Contributions demonstrate some preparation for tutorial. Some contribution of facts or opinion. 2–3 Unsatisfactory Attends 8 + tutorials but is an unwilling participant, is observed to rarely speak in small group discussion and never voluntarily speaks in class discussions. For example: only speaks when directly addressed by a tutor. 1 Does not meet attendance requirement Students must attend a minimum of 8 tutorials to be eligible for participation marks 0 Everest Simulation Participation (5%) Students will be notified of their team in Week 4. Teams can choose to work as a virtual team, in separate locations; or together in the same location either in a University computer lab or using their own computers, when completing the Simulation. However, the simulation must be played by everyone at the same time. Members of teams that complete both simulations with be awarded 5% towards their overall participation mark. Spot Collection of tutorial preparation (10%) Each week there are three (3) set questions/ requirements for students to complete as part of your engagement with the topic and preparation for the tutorial. The details of these requirements can be found on the 'To Complete' page for each topic in the Student Workbook and a form for you to use will be available on the course website for you to down load and complete. Your tutors will randomly collect these forms on FOUR (4) occasions during the semester. These will be graded SATISFACTORY/ UNSATISFACTORY only. There is no written feedback provided. MGMT1001 Managing Organisations and People 7 4.3.4 Final Examination - 35% of total mark A final two-hour exam will be held in during the University exam period for Semester 1. All material from the course is examinable (including lecture content, tutorial experiences, and compulsory readings - ie textbook and readings in the Student Workbook). Students are expected to sit the exam on the prescribed day and should not make plans to travel, attend work functions or make any other plans on this day. 4.4 Assignment Submission Procedure The essay (Assignment 1) and The report (Assignment 2) are to be submitted at your tutorial the week it is due. If you cannot attend the tutorial on the day it is due you may put the assignment in the School of Organisation and Management's assignment box no later than 6pm on the due date. You must also submit an electronic copy of the assignment to “Turn-it-in” via the Course website prior to your due date. BOTH assignments MUST have a School of Organisation and Management Coversheet attached with the declaration signed and dated. Please use the MGMT1001 Coversheet on the course website as it contains a receipt section. Your tutor will sign and return the receipt to you when they collect the assignment. You may be asked to produce the receipt as evidence of submission at a later date – so it is important you keep all receipts until the end of the course. PLEASE NOTE: Your uploaded essay must be identical to the hard copy you submit. Any differences in the hard copy submitted and the e-copy uploaded will be regarded as Academic Misconduct and you may be subjected to disciplinary action. Your assignment will not be returned until an electronic copy of the assignment is submitted to “Turn-it-in” via the Course website. 4.5 Late Submission You must submit all assignments and attend all examinations scheduled for your course. A penalty of 10% for each day the assignment is late will be applied. You should seek assistance early if you suffer illness or misadventure affecting your course progress. No extensions will be granted except in the case of serious illness or misadventure or bereavement, which must be supported with documentary evidence. Requests for extensions must be made to the Senior Tutor by email and be accompanied by the appropriate documentation no later than 24 hours before the due date of the assignment (that is the time your tutorial commences). In circumstances where this is not possible, students must complete the UNSW Special Consideration process (see section 8.3 below for more information). The Senior Tutor is the only person who can approve a request for an extension. If you do make a request for an extension, the Senior Tutor will email you and your tutor with the decision. Note: A request for an extension does not guarantee that you will be granted one. If you require special consideration read the advice on UNSW policies and procedures listed in section 8.3. Request for assignment to be re-marked From time to time some students will query the mark they have received on an assessment. If you have a question about the mark you received on Assignment 1 or Assignment 2, you must first make an appointment with your tutor no earlier than one week after the course assignment return date, but no later than two weeks from the return date, to discuss your concerns. The return date is usually 2 weeks after submission of the assignment. If you choose to pick up your assignment at a later date, keep in mind that you are still required to follow the course return date timing. If, after speaking to your tutor you remain unhappy with their explanation, you may request a review of your assignment. This request must be made within 3 weeks of the assignment return date to the Lecturer MGMT1001 Managing Organisations and People 8 in charge. Requests made later than 3 weeks will not be accepted for a re-mark. Keep in mind that a request for an assignment review is not automatically granted. To qualify for an assignment review you must submit, in writing, the specific reasons you believe a review is warranted. This document should also include a discussion of the tutor’s comments and how the components of your essay relate to the assignment criteria. Applications that request a re-mark on the basis of “I felt the mark was too low” will be rejected. If a re-mark is granted, your assignment mark may decrease, increase, or remain the same. You should be aware that historically, many assignment marks have been lowered following a review. The mark awarded following the review is final and no further discussion will be entered into. If you are requesting a re-mark of your final exam, this request must be made to the Lecturer in charge within 2 weeks of the UNSW release date of marks for the semester. 4.6 Formatting information (Essay and Report) Your assignments must be formatted as per the requirements below: - Use 11pt or 12pt font - 2.5 cm left margin - 1.5 line spacing - Leave a line between each paragraph - Number each page - Student number and course code (MGMT 1001) to appear on every page - Identical electronic copy submitted via the Course Website - Coversheet completed correctly and attached - coversheet available on course website - Use Harvard method for referencing - more information can be found on the ASB EDU website Quality Assurance The ASB is actively monitoring student learning and quality of the student experience in all its programs. A random selection of completed assessment tasks may be used for quality assurance, such as to determine the extent to which program learning goals are being achieved. The information is required for accreditation purposes, and aggregated findings will be used to inform changes aimed at improving the quality of ASB programs. All material used for such processes will be treated as confidential and will not be related to course grades. 5. ACADEMIC HONESTY AND PLAGIARISM The University regards plagiarism as a form of academic misconduct, and has very strict rules regarding plagiarism. For UNSW policies, penalties, and information to help you avoid plagiarism see: http://www.lc.unsw.edu.au/plagiarism/index.html as well as the guidelines in the online ELISE and ELISE Plus tutorials for all new UNSW students: http://info.library.unsw.edu.au/skills/tutorials/InfoSkills/index.htm. To see if you understand plagiarism, do this short quiz: http://www.lc.unsw.edu.au/plagiarism/plagquiz.html For information on how to acknowledge your sources and reference correctly, see: http://www.lc.unsw.edu.au/onlib/ref.html MGMT1001 Managing Organisations and People 9 For the ASB Harvard Referencing Guide, see the ASB Referencing and Plagiarism webpage (ASB >Learning and Teaching>Student services>Referencing and plagiarism) Students are expected to treat their work as their intellectual property. Any student who provides their work to other students undertaking this course in following semesters or years may be investigated for collusion. This may result in an allegation of academic misconduct and the grade for the course being penalised or revoked. Information for UNSW Students on Plagiarism and Academic Honesty Plagiarism is the presentation of thoughts or work of another as one’s own.* Examples include: − direct duplication of the thoughts or work of another, including by copying work, or knowingly permitting it to be copied. This includes copying material, ideas or concepts from a book, article, report or other written document (whether published or unpublished), composition, artwork, design, drawing, circuitry, computer program or software, web site, Internet, other electronic resource, or another person’s assignment without appropriate acknowledgement; − paraphrasing another person’s work with very minor changes keeping the meaning, form and/or progression of ideas of the original; − piecing together sections of the work of others into a new whole; − presenting an assessment item as independent work when it has been produced in whole or part in collusion with other people, for example, another student or a tutor; and, − claiming credit for a proportion a work contributed to a group assessment item that is greater than that actually contributed.† Submitting an assessment item that has already been submitted for academic credit elsewhere may also be considered plagiarism. The inclusion of the thoughts or work of another with attribution appropriate to the academic discipline does not amount to plagiarism. Students are reminded of their Rights and Responsibilities in respect of plagiarism, as set out in the University Undergraduate and Postgraduate Handbooks, and are encouraged to seek advice from academic staff whenever necessary to ensure they avoid plagiarism in all its forms. The Learning Centre website is the central University online resource for staff and student information on plagiarism and academic honesty. It can be located at: www.lc.unsw.edu.au/plagiarism The Learning Centre also provides substantial educational written materials, workshops, and tutorials to aid students, for example, in: - correct referencing practices; - paraphrasing, summarising, essay writing, and time management; - appropriate use of, and attribution for, a range of materials including text, images, formulae and concepts. Individual assistance is available on request from The Learning Centre. Students are also reminded that careful time management is an important part of study and one of the identified causes of plagiarism is poor time management. Students should allow sufficient time for research, drafting, and proper referencing of sources in preparing all assessment items. * Based on that proposed to the University of Newcastle by the St James Ethics Centre.

COURSE EVALUATION AND DEVELOPMENT Based on feedback and consultation with the ASBs key stakeholders (including major corporations and professional service firms, professional associations and alumni) the core program for the Bachelor of Commerce has been redeveloped. This course has been developed and included in the core based on stakeholder feedback that graduates need to be proficient not only in 'technical' skills but also have a broader understanding of the 'human side' of organisation and well developed team work, critical thinking and communication skills. Each year feedback is sought from students about the courses offered in the School and continual improvements are made based on this feedback. In this course, we will seek your feedback through the university CATEI process. 8. STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES AND CONDUCT Students are expected to be familiar with and adhere to university policies in relation to class attendance and general conduct and behaviour, including maintaining a safe, respectful environment; and to understand their obligations in relation to workload, assessment and keeping informed. Information and policies on these topics can be found in the ‘A-Z Student Guide’: https://my.unsw.edu.au/student/atoz/A.html. See, especially, information on ‘Attendance and Absence’, ‘Academic Misconduct’, ‘Assessment Information’, ‘Examinations’, ‘Special Consideration’, ‘Student Responsibilities’, ‘Workload’ and policies such as ‘Occupational Health and Safety’. 8.1 Workload It is expected that you will spend at least ten hours per week studying this course. This time should be made up of reading, research, working on exercises and problems, and attending classes. In periods where you need to complete assignments or prepare for examinations, the workload may be greater. Over-commitment has been a cause of failure for many students. You should take the required workload into account when planning how to balance study with employment and other activities. Information on expected workload: https://my.unsw.edu.au/student/atoz/UnitsOfCredit.html . 8.2 Attendance Your regular and punctual attendance at lectures and seminars is expected in this course. University regulations indicate that if students attend less than eighty per cent of scheduled classes they may be refused final assessment. 8.3 Special Consideration and Supplementary Examinations You must submit all assignments and attend all examinations scheduled for your course. You should seek assistance early if you suffer illness or misadventure which affects your course progress. General Information on Special Consideration: 1. For assessments worth 20% or more, all applications for special consideration must go through UNSW Student Central (https://my.unsw.edu.au/student/academiclife/StudentCentralKensington.html) and be lodged within 3 working days of the assessment to which it refers; 2. Applications will not be accepted by teaching staff, but you should notify the lecture-in-charge when you make an application for special consideration through UNSW Student Central; 3. Applying for special consideration does not automatically mean that you will be granted a supplementary exam; MGMT1001 Managing Organisations and People 11 4. Special consideration requests do not allow lecturers-in-charge to award students additional marks. ASB Policy on requests for Special Consideration for Final Exams: The policy of the School of Organisation and Management is that the lecturer-in-charge will need to be satisfied on each of the following before supporting a request for special consideration: 1. Does the medical certificate contain all relevant information? For a medical certificate to be accepted, the degree of illness, and impact on the student, must be stated by the medical practitioner (severe, moderate, mild). A certificate without this will not be valid. 2. Has the student performed satisfactorily in the other assessment items? Satisfactory performance would require at least a composite pass for the course assessments to date, and meeting the obligation to have attended 80% of tutorials. 3. Does the student have a history of previous applications for special consideration? A history of previous applications may preclude a student from being granted special consideration. Special Consideration and the Final Exam: Applications for special consideration in relation to the final exam are considered by an ASB Faculty panel to which lecturers-in-charge provide their recommendations for each request. If the Faculty panel grants a special consideration request, this will entitle the student to sit a supplementary examination. No other form of consideration will be granted. The following procedures will apply: 1. Supplementary exams will be scheduled centrally and will be held approximately two weeks after the formal examination period. The date for ASB supplementary exams for session 2, 2011 are: 30 November to 2 December 2011 (Venue: Goldstein Building) If a student lodges a special consideration for the final exam, they are stating they will be available on the above dates. Supplementary exams will not be held at any other time. 2. Where a student is granted a supplementary examination as a result of a request for special consideration, the student’s original exam (if completed) will be ignored and only the mark achieved in the supplementary examination will count towards the final grade. Failure to attend the supplementary exam will not entitle the student to have the original exam paper marked and may result in a zero mark for the final exam. If you are too ill to perform reasonably on the final exam, do not attend the final and apply for a supplementary instead. However granting of a supplementary exam in such cases is not automatic. If a student attends the regular final, s/he is unlikely to be granted a supplementary exam. The ASB’s Special Consideration and Supplementary Examination Policy and Procedures for Final Exams for Undergraduate Courses are available at: http://www.asb.unsw.edu.au/currentstudents/resources/forms/Documents/supplementaryexamprocedures.pdf. Special consideration and assessments other than the Final exam: For assessments worth under 20% all applications for special consideration must be lodged within 3 working days of the due date of the assessment to the lecturer-in-charge. Applying for special consideration does not automatically mean it will be granted. The student must supply an appropriate medical certificate. For a medical certificate to be accepted, the degree of illness, and impact on the student, must be stated by the medical practitioner (severe, moderate, mild). A certificate without this will not be valid. MGMT1001 Managing Organisations and People 12 8.4 General Conduct and Behaviour You are expected to conduct yourself with consideration and respect for the needs of your fellow students and teaching staff. Conduct which unduly disrupts or interferes with a class, such as ringing or talking on mobile phones, is not acceptable and students may be asked to leave the class. More information on student conduct is available at: https://my.unsw.edu.au/student/atoz/BehaviourOfStudents.html 8.5 Occupational Health and Safety UNSW Policy requires each person to work safely and responsibly, in order to avoid personal injury and to protect the safety of others. For more information, see http://www.ohs.unsw.edu.au/. 8.6 Keeping Informed You should take note of all announcements made in lectures, tutorials or on the course web site. From time to time, the University will send important announcements to your university e-mail address without providing you with a paper copy. You will be deemed to have received this information. It is also your responsibility to keep the University informed of all changes to your contact details. 9.
