Hello Class and Dr. Washington,
With the proper leadership skills employees may be influenced, motivated and/or guided towards achieving organizational goals. In order to obtain such skills there must be a level of understanding how humans behave within an organization. As an interdisciplinary body of knowledge with connections to behavioral and social sciences, one can say Organizational Behavior (OB) is also a science. According to SAGES (2019), the goal of any science is to describe, predict, explain and control. Just as Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology use scientific methods to understand behavior, OB also includes models, and variables in research to understand human behavior in organizations.
             Key characteristics of OB as a scientific discipline are the sources of research used such as field studies, survey studies, case studies, laboratory studies and Meta analyses, (Uhl-Bien, Schermerhorn, & Osborn, 2014). Focused applications is one major component used by OB researches when developing questions for field studies and survey questions. Within each organization responses to situations may differ due to several variables to which researches may have to shift approaches with contingency thinking. In order to have a true understanding of OB and provide factual results and guidance, evidence-based management is recommended in the decision making process.
To be successful in any organization having an understanding of how humans behave within organizational situations is key. Having such an understanding will help in developing skills, relationships and knowledge based decision making skills to help in an ever changing organizational environment. Looking forward to all the gains from this course.
