BMGT4051H Organisational Behaviour
Academic Year 2020/2021
This course is concerned with the complex nature of contemporary organisations and the behaviour of individuals and groups within them. OB is an interdisciplinary field drawing from social psychology, sociology, anthropology and management studies. OB is traditionally explored at three internal levels (individual, group and organisation). OB and Work emphasises the socially embedded nature of organisations and the sociology of work. While mindful of the practical realities of managing organisations, a final concern of this course is to explore and critically assess the effects of management practices on individual and group behaviour.This course aims to develop your analytical skills in engaging with and understanding OB and work issues. Key themes include group dynamics, motivation, communication and processes such as conflict, politics, and organisational `misbehaviour'. A theme running through the module is the role and impact of individual difference and the ways in which diversity and its voice can sometimes be restricted by group interaction.
