Description The Critical Integration in Management (CIM) module exposes students to general management and leadership challenges, and the application of solutions that apply approaches from all the core modules on the MBA. Real business issues are multifaceted, and so the CIM module shows students how to integrate the core subjects in holistic analysis of business problems.

In all organisations, the person who has to adopt this general business perspective is the leader … the chief executive. The module will therefore place a heavy emphasis on understanding the role of the chief executive and leadership generally.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module students should be able to:
  • Critique the general approaches used for diagnosing organisational performance and be apply a range of specific tools and techniques for identifying performance shortfalls.
  • Demonstrate critical knowledge and understanding of how leaders organise a broad portfolio of human and other resources to address performance shortfalls.
  • Demonstrate comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the role and mind-set of the chief executive.
  • Demonstrate comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the roles of a senior management consultant and the consulting firm in managing change.
