Organizational Behavior

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 levels will include communications, empowerment, leadership, diversity and cross-cultural issues. 

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.  

Organizational Behavior Podcasts

Under New Management: Under New Management is an innovative initiative within our Division to translate current, rigorous empirical research findings into practical management guidelines. Each podcast produced is an audio interview with the lead author of an OB study.


Journal of Leadership and Organizational Studies: The Journal of Leadership & Organizational Studies (JLOS) seeks to advance the theory, research and practice of all aspects of leadership and organizations. Research results are preferred, but theoretical contributions and new applications are also appropriate.
