Identify a recent (or current) organizational problem/issue faced by a real-world organization within the past three years. You will explain why the problem/issue is problematic and how it negatively impacts the effectiveness of the organization.
This individual project will provide you with the opportunity to act as an Organizational Behavior Consultant. You will identify a recent (or current) organizational problem/issue faced by a real-world organization within the past three years. You will explain why the problem/issue is problematic and how it negatively impacts the effectiveness of the organization. Then, you will propose a course of action by applying key principles, concepts, and theories of organizational behavior. Finally, you will recommend follow-up actions (evaluations) for the organization to assess whether or not the problem/issue has been resolved.
Remember that the primary focus of this research project is on your analysis of the problem/issue using organizational behavior principles, concepts, and theories, as well as your recommendation(s) for improving organizational effectiveness. You should not simply provide an historical account of a problem/issue and the organization?s solution. In fact, your recommendation(s) for addressing the problem/issue may or may not align with the organization?s previous (or proposed) course of action.
