Organisational MisBehaviour

when 27 July 2020 - 7 August 2020
language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 5 EC
fee EUR 343

The course sheds light on particular preconceptions of organisational behaviour that framed if and how misbehaviour was researched, recognized and explained. Indeed, it is suggested that due to the dominant preconceptions much early research in this area missed out on nuanced understandings of organisational misbehaviour, and especially misbehaviour by managers themselves. It is very clear, however, from experience and from research that employees at all levels do not always think and act in conforming ways – especially in ways that those in authority imagine, plan or expect that they will. As will be shown, it is the mismatch of expectations between groups that frequently gives rise to distinctive patterns of organisational politics and distinctive forms of misbehaviour.
