MGMT 54316 Organizational Behavior and Theory

The application of principles and concepts of the behavioral sciences and total quality management to the interpersonal relationships found within modern organizations. As quality management practices replace authoritarian structures with more democratic processes, a need to stress continuous improvement, self-regulation of work content and structure within a job, self-evaluation of performance, self-adjustment in response to work system variability, and participation in the setting of job goals or objectives are seen as the key to effective managerial behavior.
