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.
Topics covered
  • 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.
