Organisations are a permanent aspect of our current social system. We have structured our existence around groups of people organised together to achieve particular outcomes. How and why these groups achieve goals (or fail trying) is an enduring question within the social sciences. This course will introduce you to a range of explanations for how organisations function. I will take a three tiered approach to the problem of organisational behaviour by looking at social/cultural determinants, small group interaction and individual behaviour. This approach will necessarily be cross-disciplinary and challenging to our preconceived notions of how the world works and why.
