Course Description
In this course we will cover some concepts and theories related to management and organizational behavior. The field of organizational behavior or OB, as we generally call it, is the study of human behavior within organizations. That is, what people think, how they feel, why they think, feel and act in a certain way. If we can find answers to the above questions then we can exercise better control over human behavior and channelize it towards a more efficient and effective functioning of the organization. In this course we will study individuals singularly, as well as in the form of teams and groups, and try to get an understanding of individual characteristics and group dynamics that shape individual attitudes and behaviors. In addition, we will also talk about some system level components like, organizational culture and major management functions. The main idea behind this course is to equip students with the knowledge to understand, predict and control human behavior and help their current or future organizations in becoming more efficient and effective managers
