Organizational Behavior

Shekhar Kapoor, Trilok Kumar Jain


An organization is a social entity that has a collective goal and is linked to an external environment. If a person wishes to work in an organization or to manage it, it is necessary to understand how it operates. An organization combines science and technology, people and humanity. Unless we have qualified people to design and implement, techniques alone will not produce desirable results. So the role of human resource is of great importance to perform the work effectively and efficiently. Organizations can be of various kinds- government or non-governmental organizations, international organizations, partnerships, co-operations, charities, universities and many more.  The study of Organizational behavior in these organizations is very interesting and challenging too. It is related to individuals or group of people working together in teams. The study becomes more challenging when situational factors interact. The study of organizational behavior relates to the expected behavior of an individual in the organization.
