SYNOPSIS

There are no absolutes in human behaviour and it is dependent on individuals, groups as well as situational factors. Technical skills are necessary but insufficient to succeed in business as there is a need to deal with the people that make up the organization and their behaviours. It is the human factor that is contributory to productivity or otherwise and hence the importance of the study of human behaviour in the increasingly competitive business environment today. Organizational behaviour is a field of study that investigates the impact that individuals, groups and organizational structure have on behaviour within the organization, for the purpose of applying such knowledge towards improving organizational effectiveness. The study of Organizational Behaviour (OB) is challenging as it relates to often diverse individuals and group of people working together in teams towards a common goal, further complicated when situational factors interact. Managers therefore must understand the impact that individuals, groups and situational factors can have on behaviour and on the organization. The value system, emotional intelligence, organizational culture, job design, decision making process and the work environment are important causal agents in determining human behaviour in an organization. Managers under whom individuals work should be able to understand, predict, evaluate and modify human behaviour that will support the organizational goals and objectives. In today’s competitive world, there is a need for organizations to be proactive instead of reactive in the management of organizational behaviour. The central idea of the study of organizational behaviour is that a scientific approach can be applied to the management of employees. This talk will look at the various aspects that determine behaviour in organizations and what managers can do to not only understand the phenomena but also initiate actions that can enhance the performance in organizations.
