About this unit
This unit aims to provide students with a sound knowledge and personal understanding of the impact of human behaviour on work in groups and organisations. Furthermore, students will investigate the application of Organisational Behaviour theoretical concepts and apply them to the management of human resources. Another focus will be the determinants of individual behaviour, group dynamics and organisational processes, and their impact on organisational effectiveness. Finally, students will gain an understanding of the significance of key organisational processes and how they apply to current trends in the management of human resources.
There is an increasing emphasis in organisations on creating self-managing work teams, and students will be asked to systematically develop competencies in working in group situations. Student experiences both in and out of the class will be used as a starting point for this development. By reflecting on their experience and applying their personal learning, students will gain insight into the behaviour of people as individuals and group members within organisational settings. They will be challenged to learn about their own behaviour and their impact on others.
