Organisations are undergoing enormous changes in their structures and processes as they seek to take advantage of innovations in technology, remain competitive in Globalising markets, and deal with the increasing diversity of their staff, customers, and supply chains. The four subjects in this specialisation will examine the personal implications of the changing organisational environment - the need to continuously adapt and learn, to manage your career, to build up resilience against stress, and to take your place as a global citizen. The aim is to enable you to thrive in working in contemporary organsations. 'Improve yourself Always' addresses the need for you to continuously develop and seeks to improve your capacity to learn and adapt.
