This individual project will provide you with the opportunity to act as an Organizational Behavior Consultant. You will identify a recent (or current) organizational problem/issue faced by a real-world organization within the past three years. You will explain why the problem/issue is problematic and how it negatively impacts the effectiveness of the organization. Then, you will propose a course of action by applying key principles, concepts, and theories of organizational behavior. Finally, you will recommend follow-up actions (evaluations) for the organization to assess whether or not the problem/issue has been resolved.
Remember that the primary focus of this research project is on your analysis of the problem/issue using organizational behavior principles, concepts, and theories, as well as your recommendation(s) for improving organizational effectiveness. You should not simply provide an historical account of a problem/issue and the organizations solution. In fact, your recommendation(s) for addressing the problem/issue may or may not align with the organizations previous (or proposed) course of action.
