About the course
The precise role of management is, sadly, one of the most poorly defined, least understood and inadequately implemented organisational functions today. The casual, interchangeable and often arbitrary use of the words ‘management’ and ‘leadership’ adds to the confusion. Management has consistently been overshadowed by leadership in the media and publishing industry as it is always described in more attractive terms. This is unfortunate as effective management is one of the most important organisational functions for many different kinds of businesses.
This advanced Oxford programme, therefore, looks with fresh eyes at the traditional core functions of management and brings them right up to date. It also describes some of the essential and emerging new roles that are now demanded by the operating realities of organisations nowadays. The resulting ‘full range’ management approach subsumes and goes beyond the old PODSCoRB formula and replaces it with five vital pairs of management behaviours. It is these behaviours that will be covered in depth on the programme with adequate time be devoted to practicing and applying them during the course.
