This course is only available to students enrolled in the Executive Master of Public Administration.

This subject covers the internal management of organisations and the products or services generated in the public sector. Sound judgement is required to lead large, complex, public sector organisations in conditions that include unpredictable elements.  Therefore, themes in this subject include negotiating the organisation’s task environment, understanding and managing risks, and structuring work processes. It aims to help managers become more reflective about their practices, seeing themselves as part of a broader system.  In this way, the subject promotes greater efficacy, system-thinking, and contextual awareness in public sector managers.  Through a series of inter-linked seminars and workshops, combined with self-directed learning activities, students gain outstanding opportunities to learn, both from current literature on effective organisational practices and from practitioners with extensive experience in managing public sector organisations.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students.
