It cannot be a replacement for poor planning, organizing andcontrolling. It will not make up for our deficiencies. It cannot substitute for poor planning, ineptorganizing, or inadequate controls. It is only one of the many systems operating within a largersocial system.3 major limitations of OB are Behavioral Intolerance, The Law of decreasing Returns,unprofessional Manipulation of People.2.Benefits of Organizational BehaviorThe main benefits of the organizational culture are that it is a unique identifier for each company.We could name companies having similar organizational behaviors, but they would still have a distinct corporate culture. In this modern-day world, employees don’t only look at the pay or other benefits, but they also want to be valued. So, having a good organizational culture makes employees feel that they are valued, respected, and feel that they are very much part of the company. This makes them feel good about themselves, and hence, they would show enthusiasm,
and in turn, this will increase their efficiency, which is an advantage for any organization. They will also promote such behaviors.
