1. Perception is a method by which persons arrange and interpret their sensory thought to give meaning to their surroundings. The perception plays a very important role in organization. In organizations people actions are based on their perception of what truth is, not on the truth itself. Their decision might be biased or might be taken under pressure. For example Assessment of worker’s effort is a judgment subject to perceptual bias. The success of any undertaking, personal or business, largely depends on the flow of action. Every action or activity needs to be focused for the outcome to be in sync with the pre-determined goal. Organizational process is the continuity of a line of action, from the very beginning to the final delivery of a service or product. The process gets demanding at every stage and ensures smooth progression. Perception makes available information on actions that can be considered, which helps to control action, in turn.

The relation between organizational process and perception is deep rooted. The ability to take action, to positively affect the organization and not get personally influenced or let it affect the overall target set is selfless perception. When the decision makers in any organization remain loyal to the organization in all dealings and do not merge core business and personal gains, their perception and vision for the company is positive and healthy. However, when the mindset is affected enough to place the individual before the organization, the very same action becomes detrimental to the organization.

Organizational process, once set in motion, is expected to be ongoing and profitable to the business. Right from the start, every initiative within an organization is focused on this one goal only. It is very important that people at the helm of affairs in the organization realize and affect the process positively. Perception affects the organizational process to a great extent and the vision for the line of action should be selfless and loyal. perception is the process of recognizing and realizing the environment or we can say that perception is the process through which we can realize the person, object, thing and the environment. Each and every person whether he is in the organization or outside the organization has different perception or cognition about the same thing.
