Passovoy Class Time: Office: GSB 5.124H Office Hours: Mondays & Wednesdays 11:15 - 11:45 am & Mondays 5:00 – 5:45 pm, or by appointment (at my campus office or at my off-campus office) Telephone: (512) 426-1961 (mobile) (512) 502-8804 (home) (512) 617-8726 (off-campus office) (512) 471-5912 (on-campus office) E-Mail: [email protected] Course Description The purpose of this course is to provide a basic knowledge of the management of organizations. This course surveys issues pertaining to people in the context of organizations, including behavior and processes related to individuals, groups, and organizational systems. Many of the courses in the business school curriculum teach you to manage information, money, and other material organizational resources. All of those skills will help you become a better manager. But it is your “people skills” that will ultimately have the most impact on your success as a leader. The course is designed to provide an understanding of the fundamental theories of organizational behavior, to build critical thinking skills by analyzing how those theories apply to current management trends and issues, and to develop teamwork, problem solving, and written and oral communication skills. Lectures follow and/or compliment the text and will build upon the readings from text and assigned articles. Students are expected to be prepared for each lecture by completing the relevant assignment before class. Discussions are an integral part of each class session. Each of you may expect to be called upon to contribute ideas, opinions and insights based on the readings, videos, exercises, etc. Please see the attached course schedule for assignments and important dates. Prerequisites Credit or registration for Business Administration 324 or 324H; and credit or registration for three semester hours of coursework in psychology, sociology, or anthropology. Grade Point Average of 2.0 or better I have attempted to select one of the best textbooks on the subject of Org Behavior, and also be sensitive the the rising cost of textbooks. As such, I have adopted a new textbook published by Flat World Knowledge. Their pricing model is very innovative. If you decide to read or print the textbook from their website, the cost to you is FREE . If you decide you want a downloadable or printed and bound copy, it is available for a modest fee (allow 3-5 days for delivery). MAN 320F / Passovoy 1

According to FWK: You can print (or read) from the free , online book website, but… It’s butt ugly, because it’s printing a website. Plus, it would cost you more in paper and ink than it would to get a nice, high quality version shipped to you. If you really want it in print, the best deal is to order our or $59.95 color book . Or, you could order the
