This course if offered on a Monthly Intake
Organizational Studies takes a three-fold approach to organizational behaviour; how the individual employees, how their manager/leaders, and how organizations themselves can grow to be more productive. Productive here means, to individual employees, accepting of change and commitment. To managers/leaders, it means motivating and creating trust, and to organizations it means equity and profitability tempered by social conscience. When employees, managers/leaders, and organizations work toward a commonality of purpose, their productivity can be assured. This course will help students understand the nature of individual behaviours both in relation to co-workers and to managers/leaders. As well, students will learn why and how organizations act the way they do in the face of changing economic and societal pressures. Prerequisite: Business Communications II or equivalent. Note: This course has mandatory group work. Textbook required.
