Questions on theory and practice in management

  1. Organizational Culture Deeply seated norms, values and behaviors that members share. Work in a group — teamwork and presentation.
  2. Identify the main actors in risk and disaster management and understand their impact in the field. Work independently in self-directed study.
  3. Engage in dialogue and discussions, and argue a case. Climate features and characteristics include.

On completion of the course, students should be able to: Demonstrate a critical understanding of the nature, typology and dynamics of vulnerability.

Demonstrate a critical and practical understanding of the factors affecting and leading to vulnerability not only on a local level but those emanating from structural global processes. Understand the complex connections and interaction between hazards and vulnerabilities and how risk is contextually configured.

Multiple choice questions

Have a command of the key concepts, theories, models and principles relevant to disaster management and risk reduction. Have an adequate understanding of climate change and climate adaptation in general and in relations to extreme events in particular and be able to relate long-term impact of climate change to disaster risk management were both impacts overlap and add to further complexity.

  • More recently, work on OD has expanded to focus on aligning organizations with their rapidly changing and complex environments through organizational learning, knowledge management and transformation of organizational norms and values;
  • The 48-hour exam can be carried out from anywhere in the world — provided you have access to the Internet and have access to the relevant materials;
  • Leadership, openness of communication, participative management, role clarity, and conflict resolution, leader support and leader control;
  • Demonstrate knowledge of methods and tools for risk analysis and risk evaluation, including methods for identification and analysis of hazards and vulnerabilities;
  • Read and critique literature.

Acquire the conceptual basis to appreciate the complexities of vulnerability, risk and disaster management. Develop a better ability to engage with and relate to disaster professionals — across sectors and disciplines and work collaboratively in a field situation through understanding what constitutes vulnerability and how to deal with it.

  • Acquire the conceptual basis to appreciate the complexities of vulnerability, risk and disaster management;
  • Lewin's work in the 1940s and 1950s also helped show that feedback was a valuable tool in addressing social processes;
  • Attitudes and beliefs about organizational practices create organizational climate and influence members' collective behavior;
  • Have an adequate understanding of climate change and climate adaptation in general and in relations to extreme events in particular and be able to relate long-term impact of climate change to disaster risk management were both impacts overlap and add to further complexity.

Critically evaluate the strengths and limitations of policies and practices in the field that could potentially lead to increased vulnerability of the population. Competencies On completion of the course, students should be able to: Apply tools used for teambuilding and stress management and demonstrate knowledge about intercultural communication. Identify and formulate a relevant and current research question and develop a vulnerability profile for a case study assignment.
