Students get to know selected concepts of organisation and management. Their respective objectives, instruments and methods are discussed and their use in everyday business is critically reflected. Students learn to deal with different management concepts in a conscious and critical way, especially through case studies and discussions.
Upon completion of the module, students will:
• be familiar with the emergence, development, and content of various management concepts;
• be able to convey key findings of the various management concepts to practical issues in the field of organisation and management;
• develop skills of self-reflection (supported by the technical and didactical concepts).
Students receive deeper insights into concepts of organisation and management, including:
• Lean Management

• Quality Management
• Business Process Reengineering
The presentations and discussions within the seminars also offer possibilities to deepen and broaden these topics according to the student’s interest and current developments in theory and practice, e. g. Balanced Scorecard, Learning Organisation, Organisational Culture, Worker Participation , Networks, Diversity Management, Management by Objectives.
