This module helps students understand how people think, feel and behave as individuals and groups in and around organisations. Students will acquire insights into the cognitive and affective elements underpinning behaviours of individuals in workplace settings, design and development of work teams and organisations, and management of behavioural issues affecting organisational effectiveness. The module aims to enable students to become better employees and people managers as well as develop effective organisations. It is a multidisciplinary module that draws from sociology, psychology and management, with a focus on applying research-based theories and concepts to anticipate how people will behave, explain the behaviours and get things accomplished in organisations. This is done through the examination of issues from individual, team and organisational levels.
Organisational Behaviour and Management comes with many different theories. On My Organisational Behaviour we are trying to provide you with an overview of each of these theories, as well as this I’ll be trying to add more depth in future posts. Take a look at the current available theories below:
