Organizational effectiveness examines the behaviour of individuals and teams and spans topics including the design of management systems and structures to enable business strategy through the development of key performance indicators, targets and benchmarks. Theories relating to conflict and motivation in the workplace will guide students in their identification and application of models that address issues and challenges relating to both. In addition, students will address organizational culture, productivity, employee engagement and leadership in the context of the human resources function. Students will explore the dynamics of the relationship between organizational and change management strategies. Students will describe the role the HR professional plays in the planning and managing of organizational change to ensure organizational effectiveness.
