An excellent appreciation of the limits of their knowledge, and how this influences analyses and interpretations based on that knowledge. An excellent ability to use a range of established techniques to initiate and undertake critical analysis of information, and to propose solutions to problems arising from that analysis. An excellent ability to effectively communicate information, arguments and analysis in a variety of forms to specialist and nonspecialist audiences, and deploy key techniques of the discipline effectively. In her 2008 book Reading Management and Organization in Film, Professor Emma Bell suggests that film can provide a powerful tool for doing organisational analysis. As Bell argues: While business school curricula, traditional case studies and textbooks tend to emphasize the rationality and order associated with organization, film draws attention to the embodied, personal and emotional nature of organizational life, showing such things as sex, romance, violence, power struggles and the consequences of success and failure, alerting students to the irrational, overlooked, hidden and disorderly aspects of organizational life. Moreover, by offering a rich source of documentary and dramatic material, film enables a vicarious experience for the viewer which acts as a substitute for personal experience and so provides a ˜safe’ way of learning what it feels like to work in an organization at different historical moments and in different cultural contexts.
