Course Details
Organizational behaviour is a field of study that investigates the impact that individuals, groups, and structure have on behaviour within organizations.

Because the organizations studied are often business organizations, OB is frequently applied to topics such as absenteeism, employment turnover, productivity, human performance, working in groups, and job satisfaction.
