We will also consider the influence of physical capabilities and social systems on safety, risk management and error prevention. We will cover traditional psychological approaches in the study of organisational culture, change and communication processes as well as globalisation and international aspects of the business environment. You will also study consumer and economic psychology as complementary disciplines relevant to all aspects of work design and organisational change and development.
