Organisational behaviour refers to the systematic study of the attitudes and behaviours of individuals and groups in organisational settings. The purpose is to assist managers in predicting, explaining and controlling the behaviour of people in organisations. The unit aims to establish students' conceptual understanding of the dynamics of individual and group behaviour in organisations, to examine the ways in which different forms of organisational structure and leadership influence that behaviour, and to analyse the ability of organisations to respond to external change and to manage their own internal change processes.
