Aims and Objectives

Every day we are faced with problems that require analytical thinking, creativity and resourcefulness to solve. This unit challenges students to explore different approaches to analysing and solving problems in an organisation framework. Students will develop the ability to apply analysis techniques to unfamiliar problems and present their investigation through the use of a wide range of innovative Information Communication Technologies [ICT], including prototyping, cloud-based tools, report writing and presentations. In addition, students are encouraged to reflect upon the learning taking place throughout the unit.
