This unit introduces students to the concepts and theories relevant to the behavior of individuals and groups such as individual differences, perception, motivation and conflict resolution. Students will be introduced to the concepts of organizational characteristics with application to Agricultural cooperatives and related industries. Managing in complex environments will be used to identify, analyze and discuss organizational problems relevant to complex projects and to study the development of behavioural responses to help resolve such situations. The broader organization's dynamic relationships with its operating environment are explored and implications of that relationship for organisational culture, power, change and development considered.
