MPO essay questions 2014-15
Essay 2 (3500 words)
Have employees benefited from the transition to more post-bureaucratic forms of organisation in the private sector? Explain your answer using theory and evidence.
Your coursework assignments must be typed (Times New Roman, 12 point, double spaced). The Harvard Referencing System should be used and full references must be provided at the end of each assignment. One of the purposes of the coursework assignments is to help you to learn how to carry out research on your own. You are therefore strongly encouraged to search for your own sources (using Business Source Premier or other databases) and will be rewarded for doing so.
What is this MPO Course about?
This course is about how organisations behave and how people behave in organisational settings. It is intended to be both practically useful and intellectually challenging. The module will explore three distinct bodies of knowledge: firstly, the informal and tacit knowledge of organizations you have built up in your everyday lives; secondly, contributions from mainstream approaches to organizational behaviour (OB) and management studies; and finally, alternative, critical approaches drawn from OB and the wider social science disciplines.
Course Aims
The aim is to provide an understanding of organizational analysis and behaviour through reliance on the tacit knowledge of students and on social and human sciences such as management, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology.
Required Texts.
You are encouraged to get your own copy of the book if you do not already have it as part of your course pack.

Here are some helpful links on:
? The Harvard referencing system: http://www.bournemouth.ac.uk/library/citing_references/citing_refs_main.html
? Access to Business Source Premier?
Indicative references
As I have indicated above, you are expected to do your own searches for suitable sources. However, there is a short reading list in “Indicative References” on the Blackboard site. Most of these works should be available at the University Library. The most important ones have been put on short loan so that they can be more easily accessed by all of you. Where appropriate, the list will indicate online or electronic sources which you can access individually.
