EXAM I REVIEW QUESTIONS Note: Items added since February 8, 2010, are in italics. OVERVIEW In the first seven chapters we laid the groundwork for the rest of the semester. Chapter 1 defines organizational behavior (OB) and describes the multidisciplinary, contingency nature of OB. Chapter 2 describes the various elements of culture and how socialization contributes to the establishment and change of culture. Chapter 3 expands culture into a global setting and looks at dimensions that differentiate cultures with a brief glimpse of the human resources aspect. Chapter 4 begins the journey at the individual level by discussing various aspects of behavior such as perception, attribution, attitudes, personality and emotional intelligence. Chapter 5 moves into motivational content theories that look at the intrinsic needs of individuals and process theories that define how these needs might be met based on the situation. Chapter 6 expands on these theories as a basis for rewarding employees for behaving as desired by the manager/organization. Keep in mind that many of the distinctions in all of these theories are based on the dichotomy of internal vs . external (nature vs. nurture, dispositional vs situational, intrinsic vs extrinsic). Also remember that perception by the individual is critical to predicting behavior. Chapter 1 What is organizational behavior? What is meant by calling OB multidisciplinary? What are some of the disciplines it draws from? What levels of analysis are used in the study of OB? Why do we say OB has a humanistic focus? In general, how is research conducted and used for OB? What do we mean by the contingency approach? What are some of the “shifting paradigms” that have impacted organizational behavior?
