Final Project – Organizational Behavior

Your final project will consist of creating a consulting project for this course. The project requires you to examine a problem or issue of concern in a real organization. The purpose of the project is to give you an opportunity to apply what has been learned in the course (through course lectures, readings, and discussions) to problems in an organization of your choice. You should identify a public, private, or not-for-profit organization (or part of one) to study. You may select an organization in which you have worked for in the past. I advise you to be selective in choosing an issue or problem within an organization, as a lack of depth in the issue itself will not be an acceptable excuse for lack of depth in the analysis.

You will then gather information from people in an organization through direct contact. You may supplement this information with data from the media, the organization’s literature, and other secondary sources. You should identify a relatively recent problem to analyze (i.e., this should not be an historical account of a problem and the company’s solution). You should focus your analysis by applying the concepts from the course. While it is acceptable to incorporate several concepts from the course, please aim for depth rather than size regarding the use of course concepts. An ideal project would incorporate one or more concepts each from the individual level of analysis, the interpersonal level of analysis, and the organizational level of analysis.

Your project will be evaluated equally on the following criteria:

1. Problem definition: how well (i.e., thoroughly and concisely) do you describe the organizational context, the relevant parties, and the factors that are important to the problem?
2. Accurate and thorough use of course concepts.
3. Integration of course concepts with information about the company and problem, i.e., how well do you integrate course concepts with information about the problem to illuminate the problem in a way that leads to solutions?
4. Extent to which recommendations are consistent with analysis.
5. Feasibility and specificity of recommendations.
6. Quality of written analysis.
Clear, unambiguous, and effective writing
Proper grammar, spelling and punctuation
Correct citation format (APA)
