This course focuses on a number of work related attitudes (e.g., organisational commitment, group cohesion, job satisfaction etc), theories that attempt to explain how these attitudes are related to organisational problems, the instruments that have been developed for their measurement, and how organisational development can change organisational attitudes and deal with problems. Organisational problems such as absenteeism, turnover, and safety, are a particular focus.
Students that complete this course will understand:1. How to apply theory in order to understanding issues that may be causing specific organisational problems.2. How to identify appropriate measures and interpret the data they produce for specific problems.3. How to use data to develop a change plan.4. Key issues which influence the change process.5. Variables which can be measured to evaluate change outcomes
