Course Description
An organization is a collection of people working interdependently to achieve
common goals. Thus management is mainly a people-oriented process and understanding
organizational behavior is essential for effectively managing or working in any
organization.
Management as a process involves planning, organizing, leading, and controlling.
Organizational behavior involves learning how people think, feel, and behave, individually
and as part of a group. To be successful, managers must not only understand why people
behave the way they do in organizations but they must also be able to apply their
understanding in the practical, complex dynamics of the workplace.
This course exposes students to the theories, functions, and processes of
management as well as enlightening students on advanced behavioral science theories and
applications in management. Organizational behavior (OB) draws understanding from
numerous disciplines including psychology, social psychology, sociology, and anthropology.
Course Objectives
At the end of the course students should be able:
o To understand fundamental concepts and principles of management, including the
basic roles, skills, and functions of management;
o To assess theoretical aspects and the practice of management and weigh the
relevance of organizational behavior in management practice.
o To evaluate managerial implications of current OB theory and research.
o To demonstrate analytical and problem-solving skills in the application of
organizational behaviour knowledge to work-related situations.
o To develop leadership qualities essential for achieving goals of an organization and
acquire scientific decision-making skills, especially relating to the human element in
an organization.
