A printed extract of the Academic Regulations, known as the Assessment Regulations, is available for every student from your Faculty Office MAMBAS (all new students will have received a copy as part of their welcome pack). In the unlikely event of any discrepancy between the Academic Regulations and any other publication, including this module guide, the Academic Regulations, as the definitive document, take precedence over all other publications and will be applied in all cases.

In the management and leadership field much is written and discussed about the following seven elements: (1 ) behavior, (2) knowledge 3) skills / capability (4) belief systems, (5) values, (6) identity, (7) vision/ purpose. Using various methods, students will be encouraged to make sense of each of these ideas, and the interrelationship between them. This will be set against a real/simulated strategic learning context. Module participants are actively encouraged to reflect upon their own existential experience and development through dynamic relations with others and performing roles.
It is hoped the module will lead to students developing profound personal insights and also achieve personal growth. The duel uses different activities to enquire into, reflect upon and diagnose personal, group and organizational leadership and transformation. Students will be able to diagnose where a/ their team or organization is weak and design interventions that can help to guide significant change or transformation. The student will be equipped with a clear methodology for guiding his or her own development as an achiever or leader of the future. Assessment is by way of portfolio. 3.

Assessment Students are required to assemble a “patchwork text” (Lilies, 2003; Winter, 2003) which relates your current or future workplace role. The patchwork text may be developed or based upon the following: Sets De Varies (2004) suggests that people are prisoners of their past. Evaluate and reflect upon how your past might influence your future workplace role and development. Evaluate and reflect upon a personal experience of change in your workplace Apply Grants and Malt’s (1997) role analysis to your current workplace experience.

Apply James and Arbor’s (2005) “reading and carrying framework” to critically evaluate and reflect upon how you interact with others.
