Organisational Theories - study help?Watch
What are some organisational theories? Is it the same thing as leadership/management theories?
plz help, literally any help at all will be appreciated
Maybe ask me something more specific?
Think about contingency theory, division of labour, bureaucratic theory, the rational perspective, the modern perspective, scientific management, the Hawthorne studies (and effect). Good luck!
OP, get clarification on what exactly you're being asked to look at, organizational behaviour is rife with theories... With some more direction we could help you far more effectively. It'll almost certainly be about leadership... In which case Fielder's Contingency Theory is straight forward and easy to digest. For something a bit more fuller and argubly more interesting, look at the shift from the Taylorist scientific management approach (where managers dictated and expected employees to obey) to Mayo's Hawthorne Studies identifying the psychological needs of employees and the subsequent (albeit delayed) boom in employee motivation and empowerment (more recently, engagement or participation) theories which argue an organisation is more effective with employees happier and more committed when employees are involved in how they do their job (I.e. two way communication and sharing responsibility).. If you need any specific help or references, give me a shout.
