Inhoud vak

Organisations in the health and life science sector are changing fast, a
phenomenon driven by newly emerging technologies and increasing societal
complexity. A growing number of students with a beta degree will hold
professional and managerial functions in these organisations. During
this course students will learn how to be effective performers within
these environments, both individually and in teams. This requires an
understanding of the macro aspects of organisational behaviour,
including designing organisations, managerial skills and ways of
strategic thinking. Several speakers conduct lecturers on aspects as
motivation, managing interpersonal behaviour, leadership, communication
and developing and changing organisations. The speakers explain theories
from literature and relate them to their practical experiences. Also,
practical cases of health care companies will be analysed and discussed,
resulting in advisory reports for management. With the other students
you discuss your experiences and a coach helps you relate the
experiences to theory.
