This module provides students with a detailed understanding of human behaviour in organisations. Organisational behaviour seeks to understand, explain and predict individual, group and organisational behaviour in the workplace. To do this, it borrows heavily from sociology, psychology and to a lesser extent anthropology. Topics covered include, among others, personality, perception, group dynamics and organisational development.
Explain the scope of study in the fields of Behavioural Science and Organisational Behaviour.
Discuss the individual human perspectives on perception, attitude, learning, and personality.
Distinguish the interrelations between the individual, the group, and the organisation.
Analyse the social aspects of people, organisation, and managing diversity.
Assess the ethical dimensions of organisational culture, power, and reward systems.
