The paper "Group and Organizational Behaviour" is an outstanding example of a business annotated bibliography. In an organization, there are different sub-sections that when grouped together forms one system that runs efficiently as a whole business without hitches. In an organization, employees are required to work together to achieve the main objectives that it was established for, therefore there is a need for a scientific approach that can be applied to manage the employees. The approach is known as organizational behaviour. This is the study of the way people interact within groups and is applied in an attempt to come up with more efficient business organizations.
Under the Organizational behaviour, organizational behaviour in context is one of the topics that I will discuss regarding the approach that can be applied to manage workers in an organization. Three journal articles have been written regarding organizational behaviour in context namely: group and organization management; a journal of organizational behavior; organizational behavior and human decision processes. In these three articles, there are similarities, differences and reconciliation of opposing points that are featured in them.
These are captured in the main body of the report. BODY Group and organizational behaviour (Griffin & Moorhead, Organizational Behaviour: managing people and organization, 2010). According to Ricky W. Griffin, organizational behaviour is the study of behavior of humans in organizational settings, of the interface between human behavior and the organization and the organization itself. According to the article, we can study individual behavior without explicitly considering the organization. But because the organization influences and it is also influenced by individuals, we cannot fully understand the individual’ s behavior without learning something about the organization.
Similarly, we can study organizations without focusing explicitly on people within them. In every set of an organization, there are individuals with different human behaviors. Each individual brings to an organization a unique set of personal backgrounds and characteristics and experiences from other organizations.
