Leading the Company of the Future

Leading the Company of the Future (MGT557)


These days, a revolutionary notion can be observed at workplaces. Companies today are not just experimenting with how they approach the competitive marketplace of products, services, and experiences, but also how they consider the competitive marketplace of talent. Companies are testing the attractiveness of the various combinations of social glue and reorganising their systems, structures, and processes to attract and retain unusual talent. The organisation of the future aims to create tangible and intangible values that both the employer and employee can enjoy. Collaboration and mutual advantage underpin the essence of the organisation, as these fundamental qualities can create flexibility, resiliency, speed, and creativity in a VUCA environment. MGT557 Leading the Company of the Future examines the foundations and applications of everyday leadership. Students will learn how to design, manage, and lead companies in a futureforward manner. As students appraise the principles and frameworks from this course, they will be better equipped to effectively navigate the complex challenges that they face in their own organisation. The course helps students discover new perspectives on how to foster innovation and develop an entrepreneurial mindset.
