Course


BADM532 – Organizational   Behavior

 

Purpose of Assignment


The purpose of the project is to give your team an opportunity to   apply what has been learned about organizational behavior (through course   lectures, readings, research, and discussions) and expand research skills to   analyze problems of an organization. Since organizational work involves   working and communicating with others, you are asked to participate in a   group project. You will be randomly assigned to work in groups.

 

The aim of the group project is two-fold: 1) the project allows you   to research and explore organizational behavior concepts in depth and 2) the   project allows you to evaluate a current concept within organizational   behavior within multiple organizations using the OB concepts we have learned   and the analytical skills you have developed in the course. Your team will   select a current concept in OB and identify at least four organizations in   which this concept is applied to research and present on.

  3. Be        prepared to discuss how this organizational concept is applied in your        own workplace – or could be applied.
