University rank #501 (WUR) Online
The Managing 1 - Organisations and People programme offered by The Open University UK investigates organisational behaviour and human resource management. Designed for working managers, those who deputise for managers, management trainees, supervisors and team leaders, it takes a very practice-based approach to studying management concepts, focusing on your own role.

About

It is suitable for aspiring managers provided you have experience of either paid or unpaid (voluntary) work involving leading a group or team; a project or task involving one or more others; or running/helping to run a voluntary organisation. It is not suitable if you have no previous work experience (paid or unpaid) on which to draw. 

This Managing 1 - Organisations and People programme offered by The Open University UK enables you to critically reflect on and analyse workplace situations and your own ways of managing. It is ‘solution oriented’ to help you to not only understand work situations from a manager’s perspective, but also to help you to work out what to do, given that you may not be in charge of the organisation you work for. 

As you work through activities, problems and solutions, you will question the idea that there are single solutions or issues or that there is ‘one best way’. You will come to understand the constraints, choices and demands that operate and learn when to work within them and when and how you may be able to bring about change.
