Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to 

understand how behavior in organizations (Organizational Behavior) comes about. For this purpose, an understanding of how individual abilities, group dynamic processes, and organizational framework conditions affect motivation, which ultimately influences behavior. On this basis, students know how they can impact employees and teams as managers. To this end, they learn to comprehensively fill the leadership role, set priorities, and evaluate different options for action (situational leadership) as a leader and also apply them in (group dynamic) exercises or to solve current cases.
