    COURSE DESCRIPTION

    Organizational behavior is a field of study that seeks to understand, explain, and improve human behavior in organizations. Most organizations focus their efforts on improving two aspects of human behavior: (1) job performance—the degree to which individuals perform the behaviors needed for the organization to achieve its goals; and (2) organizational commitment—the degree to which employees remain loyal to the organization rather than seeking employment elsewhere. This course will guide you through a model that seeks to explain these two areas of organizational behavior.

    COURSE OBJECTIVES

    After completing this course, you will be able to:

    1. Identify and define organizational behavior concepts.
    2. Apply those concepts to improve your understanding of your work attitudes and behaviors.
    3. Apply those concepts to improve the functioning of your organizational unit.
