Course Project: Organizational Behavior Perspectives

Course Project: Organizational Behavior Perspectives

The course project has major assignments that will be due in Weeks 3 and 5.  It will take more than a week’s effort to adequately complete them.  Plan time to start the research and other work for those assignments  earlier than the week in which they are due.

Course Project Scenario

Your course project is to identify potential organizational behavior  problems and recommend solutions for an organization with which you are  familiar. All your weekly, written papers will be course project tasks.

Early in Week 1, identify an organization you would be  interested in studying. You will investigate the organizational behavior  in this organization and research best practice solutions for any  problems you observe. You may select your own organization, the  organization of a family member, or an organization that interests you.  Be sure to review each week’s assignments before selecting the  organization to make sure you can locate necessary information. Contact  your instructor early in the week if you need advice on your  organizational selection. As much as possible, you should utilize actual  research and real data for your project. Occasionally, you may fill in  some details with hypothetical information. However, you are expected to  provide documentation (e.g., citations) throughout your work.

Each week, you will write on the topics identified in that week’s  reading, so note any information you find related to any of the  following topics:

  • Systems theory
  • Individual behavior
  • Communication
  • Change
  • Conflict
  • Motivation
  • Groups and teams
  • Making decisions
  • Organizational culture
  • Leadership

Week 1

Assume that the human resources department of your selected  organization has received disappointing results on a job motivation  survey administered to all employees at all levels. The results indicate  that employees reported lower-than-industry-average job motivation, and  management is concerned. Employee comments on the survey included the  following:

  • My job is so boring!
  • My boss micromanages me but never tells me how I’m doing.
  • I’ve been in my position for fifteen years, but I am never allowed to provide any input about making the work better.

You have been tasked with writing a paper that reviews the  theoretical perspectives relevant to the situation in your organization.  In particular, you are interested in systems theory and job motivation  for this week’s analysis.

Tasks:

Write a paper addressing the following:

  • Summary: Identify the organization you select and provide a  summary of it. What is it? What does it do? Cite research from a variety  of sources, including the company’s website, social media sites,  company blogs, industry and trade sources, and other sources. The  summary should include the organization’s products or services, customer  or client base, areas of operation or distribution, history, main  competition, and current situation (whether it is an industry leader, a  start-up, or a well-established corporation).
  • Analysis: Analyze the factors that affect job motivation and  the internal and external consequences of low job motivation. At this  time, you do not need to propose any solutions. Rather, you are using  scholarly literature and data (e.g., observations, discussions, events,  outcomes, reports, etc.) from your organization to analyze factors and  consequences related to job motivation.

(Dear Tutor. Select a company of your choosing, and the paper needs to be 3-4 pages in length, APA format, with citations, and use at least 3-4 references)
