Behavioral Theory in Management: Home
What role does the behavior of individuals, groups, and organizations play in management? How do behavioral factors affect the functioning of organizations? How do organizations affect people? These questions are the focus of MO 300. In this course, we explore a range of ideas about the dynamics of individual, interpersonal, group, and organizational processes. These ideas will help you develop and apply insights about human behavior in organizational settings. The course material will be useful in planning careers, managing relationships with other people, groups, and organizations, making complex decisions, designing and changing organizations, and making sense of today’s — and tomorrow’s — world. This course will also help you understand some of the challenges in managing, and being managed by, others. The hope is that the tools and skills developed in this course will equip you to become more effective contributors to organizations that you join.
