The unit takes a positive and appreciative approach, presenting supportable practices and interventions to help understand and develop
more positive and productive individual, team and organisational behaviours and outcomes. A range of relevant issues will be addressed
at the organisational, environmental, team and individual levels including: the employment relationship, reward systems, positive
organisational behaviours, learning, leadership, teamwork, technology, emotions, culture and diversity.
The learning goals associated with this unit are to:
- describe and discuss the major theories and concepts that pertain to understanding behaviour in organisations
- describe and discuss contemporary perspectives in Organisational Behaviour, including the Positive Organisational Behaviour
approach to this field
- engage with the relevant research literature, and draw on that literature to make plausible, evidence-based predictions about
how environmental factors may influence organisational behaviour
- examine the role of Organisational Behaviour theory in enhancing both individual and organisational effectiveness.
