Chapter 1: Introduction into organizational behavior
Organizational behavior (OB) is a field of study that investigates the impact individuals, groups, and structure have on behavior within organizations, for the purpose of applying such knowledge toward improving an organization’s effectiveness.
OB is the study of what people do in an organization and how their behavior affects the organization’s performance. It includes these core topics:
When we use the term systematic study, we mean looking at relationships, attempting to attribute causes and effects, and basing our conclusions on scientific evidence – that is, on data gathered under controlled conditions and measured and interpreted in a reasonably rigorous manner.
Evidence-based management (EBM) complements systematic study by basing managerial decisions on the best available scientific evidence. Like doctors make decisions for best treatment for patience.
Disciplines that contribute to the OB field
Psychology seeks to measure, explain, and sometimes change the behavior of humans and other animals. Those who have contributed and continue to add to the knowledge of OB are learning theorist, personality theorists, counseling psychologists, and, most important, industrial and organizational psychologists.
Social psychology, generally considered a branch of psychology, blends concepts form both psychology and sociology...
...Application of Motivational Theory in the OrganizationApplication of Motivational Theory in the Organization
It was not long ago when employees were considered just ingredient in the production of goods and services. Today however, employees are much more of the equation and require more than just the carrot of a weekly paycheck. They require motivation. Motivation represents those psychological processes that cause arousal, direction, and persistence of voluntary actions that are goal directed (Kinicki & Kreitner, p. 144, 2009).
At a regional wireless carrier in North Carolina, John is supervisor of facilities. His primary responsibilities are overseeing the corporate headquarters building and retail locations for upkeep and safety. He is also responsible for new construction and remodeling as needed. John is very capable in his job but is relatively hard headed when working with others and lacks organizational habits to help him do his job better and more efficiently. In the final analysis, a motivation tool must be implemented to help him with his performance which will lead to more efficient effort.
John’s duties and responsibilities are very task oriented. With that said, the goal setting theory would be the best solution to accomplish the most motivation for this employee. The goal setting theory is generally accepted as among the most valid and useful motivation theories in industrial and...

Younger’s formal communication system between employer and...
...various factors of the external and internal influence directly or indirectly to the organization
The Internal Environment
The internal environment of an organization refers to events, factors, people, systems, structures and conditions inside the organization that are generally under the control of the company. The company's mission statement, organizational culture and style of leadership are factors typically associated with the internal environment of an organization. As such, it is the internal environment that will influence organizational activities, decisions and employee behavior and attitudes. Changes in the leadership style, the organization's mission or culture can have a considerable impact on the organization.
The External Environment
The external environment are those factors that occur outside of the company that cause change inside organizations and are, for the most part, beyond the control of the company. Customers, competition, the economy, technology, political and social conditions and resources are common external factors that influence the organization.

Cultural issues receive little specific attention, even in those organizations. It is also showing how was the person in an enterprise will feel, think, act and value. Organizational culture is guided by ideas, meanings and beliefs of a cultural (socially shared) nature. There is no unique corporate culture and it doesn’t lower the implication whether managers think that culture is too soft or too complicated to bother about (Alvesson, 2012). A greater synergy is comes from a strong culture. It can bring people together. People can know more friends and know each other if they have opportunity to communicate. Besides, a strong culture engages people and it will create greater productivity and it will also impact the profitability. The organizational culture is very important because the culture is deciding how the employees can interact at their workplace, which a healthy culture can make them loyal towards the management and it can be more motivated.
