Organizational Behaviour

Organizational behaviour is part of the life sciences, it focuses on analyzing, managing, and developing individuals, groups, organizations, managements, executive bodies and ethics. It cuts across all job categories, business functions and professional specialties. Organizational behaviour draws on a vast variety of disciplines and fields of learning.

Organizational behaviour is a discipline of ongoing development. For instance the definition of behaviour has been vastly enhanced by discoveries in philosophy, neural science, and international understanding and awareness. Organizationa behaviour therefore is future oriented and in that process sometimes contradicts the traditional views on behaviour of the past. The question 'what is behaviour' itself is being reviewed in the light of new discoveries. The same could be said of organizations, management, and the thinking, tasks and roles of executives. Ethics too, is an area of practice and research that is very important in coming to terms with the complexities and intricacies of the world as it was, as it is today and the world of the future. Therefore organizational behaviour has to be put in the context of life. We cannot assume that all work related behaviour and organisations of the future are going to be using the technology of money for instance. We need to see organizational behaviour in a much broader context, and at the same time understand the parameters in which organizational behaviour operates in societies today. The current arrangement of organizations and societies is but one of many possibilities.

It is within this context that organizational behaviour has defined a large variety of possible organizational behaviour models; beginning with the early evolution of man, organizational behavioural models as discovered in human history, all the way up to present time; bearing in mind that any of these models as well as new organizational behavioural models may emerge as a reality today or some future tomorrow. Part of organizational behavioural work is related to defining what is, what are the organizational behaviours which are being presented in the field of operation we are going to engage in. In this research we discover not only what is, but also what is no longer extant. This is particularly the case with the advent of new technologies, business process reengineering and organizational trends that make us count the conditions that no longer apply, since time has moved forward, and with it changes have occured that have made previous modes of the past redundant.

Organizational behaviour is of primary concern to building futures; futures that will have a use for behaviours, for organization, for management and executive and ethical considerations. For many new beginnings and understanding of organizational behaviour is vital to forming new individual success stories, new businesses, new organizations, new societies that will develop and succeed in future. Organizational behaviour is also vital to organizations that exist today and which are considering whether they want their organization to be part of the past, the present and or the future. Organizational behaviour provides a vast repertoire of understanding and management consulting understanding to enable individuals and organizations to operate under any of these conditions.

Organizational behaviour is by the nature of the variety of different organizations very much oriented towards how different organizations behave when they were, are or will be in some form of contact with each other. The world of business, and the nature of history is such that the interaction between organizations has been and is the one of the main concerns of management and executives alike. Here too, organizational behaviour plays an all important role in how to manage and lead organizations, and in particular to provide expertise in how to manage the complexities of inter-organizational affairs, and inter-organizational affairs between sometimes vastly different organizations.

Organizational behaviour as a discipline has been drawing on the vast experiences of mankind in the field of organizational behaviour, and this expertise is expanding with the ongoing additional research that is being conducted in a wide array of academic and professional disciplines.
