Content
This module provides an integrated perspective on how businesses develop towards successful future operation. Crucial issues include:

  • Business ethics: mechanisms how companies and their managers, employees, investors and others involved cope with ethical dilemmas, including phenomena like social responsible entrepreneurship and innovation;
  • Change management: approaches towards changing organisations towards new future objectives in terms of organizational constellation, culture and innovation development;
  • Leadership: looking at the roles, responsibilities, tools and styles to be used by managers depending on the maturity of the organization, employees, environment;
  • Strategic and responsible foresight: employing techniques with which companies can prepare themselves for new future challenges, as well as in how they can approach innovations by taking into account their societal impacts and expectations.
