24 Human Resource Management Module Code BE470 New or revised Revised NQF Level 7 Credit Value 10 Date of Introduction Duration (weeks) 8 Pre-requisites (modules which must be taken before this module) Co-requisites (modules which must be taken in the same year) Module Description Over recent decades, social and political shifts have culminated in the emergence of Human Resource Management (HRM) as an organizational practice distinct from more traditional personnel approaches to managing people at work. An HRM approach takes a strategic view of the organizations employees as drivers of competitive advantage and HRM functions resourcing, performance and reward management, employment relations, and learning and development are correspondingly aligned with this aim. However, the roots of HRM in the neo-liberalism of the 1980 s in the USA and UK in particular mean that the employee advocacy role of the traditional personnel manager has been eclipsed in favour of activities that further managerialist ends, making a critical interrogation of HRM rhetoric and practice an essential part of any socially responsible management education. This module is an essential part of the MSc Management suite of programmes and on successful completion, students will have a critical understanding of the theory and practice of HRM in domestic and international contexts, as well as an awareness of how HR practices impact both on the individual and wider social structures.

28 Creativity and Organisation Module Code BE465 New or revised Revised NQF Level 7 Credit Value 10 Date of Introduction Duration (weeks) 8 Pre-requisites (modules which must be taken before this module) Co-requisites (modules which must be taken in the same year) Module Description The overarching objective of the module is to engage the students with state of the art knowledge production in the field of creativity management. By offering an intensive course where both practical methods and in-depth theoretical analysis are presented, the module will help students develop their own understanding of the field and supply them with conceptual and practical tools. Particular attention will be paid to the development of transferable skills students will apply various creativity tools and techniques and critically reflect on these, thus enabling them to work effectively in creative problem solving teams. The concept of Creativity has very much re-established itself on the corporate radar since its heyday of the 1950s and 1960s. In fact, the discourse of creativity is rife within society at large (Thrift, 2002), with the necessity for creativity now seemingly elevated above many other aspects of traditional management discourse. Not only is the discourse of creativity familiar, it is instantly recognisable: we know the language of creativity; we know how to identify and classify creativity; we are told how to be creative; and sometimes we are even asked what do you want to create? Creativity has become normalised ; our understanding has become framed by the language of creativity, our being creative prescribed both substantively and instrumentally. The literature (and language) of creativity is, of course, evolving. We are re-classifying, finding new methods, working on our understanding of the essence of creativity. Creativity has become the modern mantra. We have creative industries, creative partnerships and creative approaches of which individuals, businesses and even governments are trying to harness the potential. Creativity is seen as essential for our survival, economically and socially. Hence the need to challenge clichéd representations of creativity, the typical creativity is wonderful and we need a lot more of it... type arguments, and assist students to become more creative (or at least more reflective) in their own practice.
