Research Paper Proposal
English comp II Jenna Fussell July 4, 2010 Research Proposal As a student pursuing a degree in Health Care Administration with plans to work in Organizational Behavior, which is the understanding and utilization of knowledge on how individuals and groups interact in organizations. It covers a wide range of topics such as human behavior, culture, diversity, communication, change, leadership and teams. The study of Organizational Behavior will help me to understand how people think, feel, react in a structured organized environment.
Although it is a relatively new field of study, and draws most heavily from the psychological and sociological sciences, it also looks to other scientific fields of study for insights. I enjoy talking to people and understanding how they think as well as behave. When a company is thinking of implementing Organizational Behavior principals in its sites, it would need to consider a lot of factors, lots of research would need to be conducted on a lot of things that will determine which principals would need to be implemented in the ompany.
Organizational Behavior attempts to target the root cause of interactions between two professionals at the workplace. Organizational Behavior accomplishes laying rules and guidelines for human behavior at work and asking the employees to focus and adhere to the micro-level practices. Upon completion of reading and researching all the information on Organizational behavior I have learned a lot and have found this to be something I will enjoy learning so much more about.
Going into this field of study I will learn all spects of different individual’s behavior in the work place and come to work on getting help for it if needed. There are four major models of frameworks that organizations operate out of: Autocratic: The basis of this model is power with a managerial orientation of authority. Custodial: The basis of this model is economic resources with a managerial orientation of money. The employees in turn are oriented towards security and benefits and dependence on the organization. The employee need that is met is security.
The performance result is passive ooperation. Supportive: The basis of this model is leadership with a managerial orientation of support. The employees in turn are oriented towards Job performance and participation. The employee need that is met is status and recognition. The performance result is awakened drives. Collegial: The basis of this model is partnership with a managerial orientation of teamwork. The employees in turn are oriented towards responsible behavior and self-discipline. The employee need that is met is self-actualization. The performance result is moderate enthusiasm.
