It encompasses team performance, leadership, role structure, conflict, motivation and a host of other issues that drive the effectiveness and ultimately the performance of individuals, teams, and ultimately organizations. A combination of readings, lectures, discussion, and videos will be used to try to convey these points. TEXT Robbins, Stephen P. & Judge, Timothy A. (2007). Organizational Behavior (13 th Edition). New Jersey: Pearson/Prentice Hall. Course Policy 1. Attendance at lectures is important. This form of instruction is necessary in an introductory course. Lectures are a very efficient means of communicating information basic information, updated information and real-world examples. Lectures will be derived from the assigned textbook, personal experiences and other sources. Dr. Roth will NOT “teach the text.” She will focus on key concepts and introduce "real world" examples. Lecture notes will be available on the course website. However, these notes will summarize the main points made in class, and are not sufficient, by themselves, to ensure a high score on the exams. They are provided as a note-taking aid, but are not meant to replace note-taking during class. In other words, many things will be said in class that do not appear in the PowerPoint slides or in the textbook, but may appear on the exam. 2. Discussion and questions. Discussion between students and the instructor is critical to the learning experience. In some instances you may disagree with the text or what is said in class. 1

This is to be expected, and we strongly encourage you to discuss these disagreements. To be successful in the business world, you will have to be able to gather information that may contradict your preconceived notions, analyze that information and decide whether to change your views. 3. Readings. There is an assigned textbook for the course. The text is meant to complement rather than duplicate the classroom material. Many of the key points in the text will also be covered in class, but you will be responsible for the unique aspects of both. The classroom will provide more in-depth coverage of selected topics, whereas the text will provide more broad- based coverage. 4.
