Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course is rather annoying for engineering students; especially if you are from engineering disciplines where your expectations are much higher than the engineering students who are from other engineering disciplines who seem to put little effort and do not know what they are doing. Yes, I am talking about industrial engineering students.... they were pain in the ass to deal with for group projects so try to get your friends in the course with you so you don't have to deal with so-called 'bs' and excuses. A 3 hours lecture and a tutorial section afterwards. Profs and TAs are tired and so are you, but they try to make the materials easier to understand for you and do a lot of activities that allow you to relax. However, depending on your concentration level for the class, you might not really get much out of the lectures and the notes posted online or the textbook were hard to digest for me, so I suggest you pay attention to key things. Ask the TAs at the end who are very kind and more energetic than the professor who gave the lecture for 3 hours and had to deal with annoying students who ask dumb questions along the way. The group project and the assignment is not difficult, but it's just annoying as you have to provide personal experiences/insight/some critical thinking on a material you are probably not that interested if you are not industrial engineering student. Make sure you form a good group, or figure out how things are going to go and just carry if you know things are going to go south early on. It's not difficult material-wise so you can definitely carry. Exam has always been similar over the years so definitely check them out and you will get a very good sense of things you want to think about before going into the exam because they ask you to come up with examples that apply to what's being taught.
Organizational behavior is not to be taken lightly and it does matter to you on a personal level since how you should think and behave both effect others around you and yourself. The professor made good connection to real world examples so you will get a good sense of what that exactly means. The assignment and project required some researching which help you understand how to do research; quickly going over dozens of papers to find which are suitable for your arguments and understanding statistical meaning behind the studies, actually quite interesting. The professor makes you to take the personality tests which give a sense as to who you are and your personality isn't likely going to change, but she tells you that you can develop leadership skills that help you hide/mask/overcome personalities that you have which may affect your work; leadership skills are something you can learn whereas personality is something you can't really learn. Pretty straightforward concept but how you go about it is hard and she does provide some examples and activities in class where you get to learn/test such skills. Overall, the contents are useful for you realistically, and not difficult.

Advice for students:
Get good teammates for project. If not, prepare yourself early on and carry. Try to avoid as much industrial engineering students as possible as most of them are clueless and have different expectations than engineering students from other areas. Don't cry about it or make excuses. Just do it if your team cannot really help you.
