Iain Henderson introduces Organisational Behaviour
Organisational Behavior is one of seven core courses on our MBA
Making a better workplace
Organisational Behaviour examines the structures of our workplaces and looks at ways in which they can be improved. It addresses issues such as workforce motivation, incentives, team building and office environments and how we can best manage the dynamics of organisational change.
- Basics of organisational behaviour related to management.
- Stress and well-being at work.
- Contemporary theories of motivation.
- Organisational control and reward systems.
- Job design and employee reactions to work.
- Workgroup dynamics and group-based problem solving.
- Influence processes in organisations: power, politics, leadership.
- Organisational design and new service-driven organisations.
- Managing transitions: organisational culture and change.

This course is available for purchase from now and until 31 July 2021, and examinations are offered until June 2023.
If you’re thinking about starting today you’ll study our Organisational Behaviour course, as outlined here.
If you’re looking to begin studying from 2020, you’ll be able to choose our new course, People, Work and Organisations.
Both courses are equivalent and transferrable, so your choice today won’t affect your award.
