Assessment 2: Individual Assignment
The purpose of this essay is to get you to prepare for the Organisational Behaviour group assignment (Assessment 3).
Your task is to analyse two (2) key organisational behaviour theories, concepts or frameworks you intend to use in your group assignment. You may pick any theory, concept or framework covered in MGT5OBR Organisational Behaviour, either from the same or different modules. (If you are unsure, please discuss with your workshop facilitator).
This assignment requires you to do research. Your task is to draw on organisational behaviour theory to critically analyse your chosen theories, concepts or frameworks.
You need to analyse you chosen theories, concepts or frameworks in the context of organisational behaviour. Think along the lines of how these concepts may be used to help people and organisations achieve high performance levels and help ensure all organisation members achieve satisfaction from their task contributions and work experience.
You need to:
1.Introduce. Briefly describe the two (2) CHOSEN theories, concepts or frameworks and your planned consideration/use of them in the context of the Assessment 3 Group Assignment. Also outline how you have structured the essay.
2.Analyse and critically examine your first CHOSEN concept, theory or framework. Consider the pros and cons in order to come to a supported assessment and conclusion. Explain and clarify using concrete examples. Use organisational behaviour concepts, theory and frameworks in addressing this section.
3.Analyse and critically examine your second CHOSEN concept, theory or framework. Consider the pros and cons in order to come to a supported assessment and conclusion. Explain and clarify using concrete examples. Use organisational behaviour concepts, theory and frameworks in addressing this section.
4.Connect your two (2) CHOSEN concepts, theories or frameworks. Discuss the linkages you see between your CHOOSEN concepts. Explain and clarify your position with the use concrete examples.
For example, if expectancy theory is your first CHOSEN concept and job satisfaction is your second CHOSEN concept, then how would expectancy theory help reduce the problems created by job dissatisfaction? Would job satisfaction help increase an employee’s willingness to perform and, if so, which attitudes would be the most influential?).
5.Conclude the discussion. Summarise key points made in the essay.
6.Provide a reference list. You need to use the APA 6th Referencing style.
