Residency Session Assignment
Course
BADM532 – Organizational
Behavior
Purpose of Assignment
The purpose of the project is to give your team an opportunity to
apply what has been learned about organizational behavior (through course
lectures, readings, research, and discussions) and expand research skills to
analyze problems of an organization. Since organizational work involves
working and communicating with others, you are asked to participate in a
group project. You will be randomly assigned to work in groups.
The aim of the group project is two-fold: 1) the project allows you
to research and explore organizational behavior concepts in depth and 2) the
project allows you to evaluate a current concept within organizational
behavior within multiple organizations using the OB concepts we have learned
and the analytical skills you have developed in the course. Your team will
select a current concept in OB and identify at least four organizations in
which this concept is applied to research and present on.

organizational behavior concept to their organizational structure.
