Popis, cíl a formy výuky:This course aims to develop the understanding of how people behave in Agribusiness organizations and how the management process can be helped by such an understanding. Thus, areas of what might be referred to as organizational behaviour are intermingled with those of human resource management. Theoretical concepts are addressed in terms of their implications for practice in agribusiness, and how these areas interact are a special focus of attention. The course operates by going through topics at three main levels. The first of these levels focuses on individual behaviour- how we learn and remember, perceive, communicate, our attitudes, personality, motives and emotions; these are addressed through practical cases and examples, such as impression management, social perception and non-verbal behaviour during interviews, the importance of attitudes in safety culture, personality traits and emotional intelligence and how different payment systems depend on motivational theories. The second level moves on to focus on the individual as he or she functions in group or teamwork; again the focus begins with the theoretical concepts in group dynamics and decision making and then practical cases are addressed such as how groups handle risky decisions, team roles, leadership, conformity and negotiation. The third level operates at that of the organization, and takes on the complexities of organizational culture and structure, management of change. A final level considers how organizational behaviour and human resource management differ across cultures and uses cases from multinational companies to facilitate this.
