Organisational behaviour is the study of human behaviour in organisational settings, of the interface between human behaviour and the organisation, and of the organisation itself. Although we can focus on any one of these three areas, we must also remember that all three are ultimately necessary for a comprehensive understanding of organisational behaviour. For example, we can study individual behaviour without explicitly considering the organisation. But because the organisation influences and is influenced by the individual, we cannot fully understand the individuals behaviour without learning something about the organisation. Similarly, we study organisations without focusing explicitly on the people within them. But again, we are looking at only a portion of the puzzle. Eventually, we must consider the other pieces as well as the whole.
This assignment has been designed to provide you with an opportunity to demonstrate your achievement of the following module learning outcomes:
LO 1 Define theories, models and concepts relating to the study of human behaviour in the workplace
LO 2 Demonstrate an understanding of how these theories can explain the way that people behave and interact at work at individual, group and organisational levels
LO 3 Demonstrate an understanding of the impact that organisational culture can have on the success of that organisation
As an individual, you are to use relevant business and company specific examples, supported by appropriate literature and theory, to write a report which tackles the following:
- Identify its culture in line with a theoretical model of your choice
- Explore how culture improves organisational effectiveness with a focus on communication; and
- Evaluate the role of culture on employee motivation.
- Evaluate how the company could use the culture of the organisation to further enhance its success.
