This module comprises two components and further develops the analytical skills and insights required for Management. Firstly, The Management Kaleidoscope examines some of the alternative perspectives on Management and the changing policy and business environment for organisations. It will explore the emergence of alternative organisational forms, such as community ownership or co-operatives and look at the growth of hybrid organisational forms and practises.Secondly, the Analysis of Financial Data component seeks to engage with accounting from a broader sociological perspective through trying to make sense of the production and impact of accounting knowledge and the effects that it can have upon organisations and society alike. It will develop an understanding of accounting that is firmly rooted within the broader context of society and will highlight the way in which accounting figures are constructed, used and the effects they can have. A number of well-known financial techniques for analysing organisations are introduced.
