After summarising these models students will consider the specific implications for business and management to which they lead. Student then consider cultural influences in the context of organisational behaviour, and in particular work motivation, the relationship between the individual and the organisation (e.g., organisational commitment and justice), negotiation and disputes, teams, leadership, and expatriate management.
