Behavioral Approach to Management - Concept/Definition


Organizational behavior represents the human side of management, not the whole of management. Other recognized approaches to management include the process, quantitative, knowledge, and contingency approaches. In other words, organizational behavior does not intend to portray the whole of management.

This text on organizational behavior attempts to provide the specific, necessary background and skills to make the managers of today and tomorrow as effective with the conceptual and human dimensions of management as they have been in the past with its technical, functional dimension.
