title Management beyond the mainstream
description <div><p>This module explores practices that may be part of<em>tomorrow's</em>'mainstream' - because the issues these practices address are now surfacing more widely. Managers work in situations, or from time-to-time face challenges, for which ideas from 'beyond the mainstream' will provide more 'traction' than relying on ideas from within it. You'll learn about alternative ways of organising, working across cultural and sector boundaries, devising strategies for impact, as well as for (or instead of) profit, reading situations in terms of complex systems, learning to embrace dilemmas and the limits to our own thinking, providing leadership even when you cannot provide the answers.</p></div>
