Organizational Behavior. Organizational Behavior
Topic: Employee Motivation
A key component of the course is developing your inclination to monitor the news, especially in the business sector, to detect trends that may have an ongoing effect on an industry or profession of interest to you.
To encourage the habit of conducting current research (i.e., keeping one’s eyes open), each and every business day during the semester you will be responsible for reading the world, national and business sections of a high-quality daily newspaper (e.g., The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, New York Times) or accessing a news website or watching/listening to a news broadcast (Comedy channel is not considered one).
Electronic media can be used to satisfy this requirement. I will further discuss assignment submission requirements in the class. You must post a short paragraph (150 to 200 words) on ‘Why you or your organization would care about this issue’ and a provide a reference for the article. You need to also include a cover page with your document.
You may also find a peer-reviewed article published during the last years（within five years） to write a summary and submit it as an e-Portfolio assignment. It should be noted that the e-Portfolio assignment should be related to lectures in the class.
Due Date: March 9th.
