Syfte

This course deals with human behavior in organizations and provides basic knowledge in Organizational Behavior. It addresses how groups as well as individuals act and communicate in their organizational context. The course aims at providing an understanding of basic human dynamics in organizations. As such the course provides an introduction to topics whose basis can be found in the applied behavioral and social sciences (psychology, sociology, political science, etc.) and that have relevancy to management. The course will explore the interactions between individuals and the systems in which they live and work. Individual and group levels of analysis are included in covering such topics as communication, motivation, group dynamics, group performance, work design, creativity, leadership, and culture.

Innehåll

The course will explore the interactions between individuals and the systems in which they live and work. Individual and group levels of analysis are included in covering such topics as communication, motivation, group dynamics, group performance, work design, creativity, leadership, and culture.

Organisation

The underlying assumption is that organizations are living, open systems and that learning is best acquired by multiple means. In addition to conceptual inputs, the course will utilize structured & unstructured exercises, case analysis and student's presentations in order to:
- a) provide you with the opportunity to actually experience the behavioral dynamics being studied; and
- b) to provide situations wherein you can assess the relevance of the dynamics being studied.

Because much of the learning and work towards the achievement of course objectives will occur in the classroom, students must
1) attend class regularly,
2) be fully prepare for class and
3) contribute to the team and class discussions.
