Organizational behaviour

Organizational Behaviour (OB) is a field of study that investigates the impact that individuals, groups, and structure have on behaviour within an organization. Then it applies that knowledge to make organizations work more effectively. Specifically, OB focuses on how to improve productivity, reduce absenteeism and turnover, and increase employee citizenship and job satisfaction. Organizational Behavior uses systematic study to improve predications of behaviour that would be made from intuition alone. But, because people are different, we need to look at OB in a contingency framework, using situational variables to moderate cause-effect relationships

This course is designed to give you an understanding of attitudes and behavior of individuals and groups in all types of organizations and as to how organizations, simple or complex, are structured and patterned to achieve their goals.

Examples of topics to be covered include: job motivation, job satisfaction, job stress, workforce diversity, employee response to organizational politics, employee ownership, workplace design, spirituality in organizations, knowledge management, leadership, group dynamics, decision making, conflict, culture, cross-cultural management and change.

PM Monitoring & Control using EVM

Feedback is critical to any success of any project, this feedback can enable the project manager to identify problems early and make adjustments that can keep the project on time and on budget.

Earned Value Management (EVM), has proven itself as the most effective performance management and feedback tool for managing projects. EVM is called "management with the lights on", because it can help clearly and objectively illuminate where a project is and where it is going- as compared to where it was supposed to be and where it was supposed to be going.

EVM provides the organization and the project manager with the methodology needed to integrate the management of project scope, time, and cost.
