BUSN 689: Organizational Business —This class will conduct a comprehensive examination of different organizational behavior theories including the analysis at individual, group and organizational levels. Individual levels include perception, personality, and motivation.
Group levels will include decision-making, group dynamics and team building.

Organizational behavior is more than an “org chart” detailing how a business or group is structured. It takes into account the whole organization, its structure, communications, ways of managing different employees, conflict resolution, and remote locations. In the next six weeks you learn about how and why organizational structure affects employees and their productivity. You learn about what motivates people, group/team function, managing conflict, and how all of these topics impact management of a global workforce.
