The final project for this course is the creation of a case study analysis.
Through the practice of analysis and application of human behavior theories and concepts, you will develop your critical thinking skills and the ability to properly diagnose root causes of organizational issues while recommending solutions that create sustainable positive change within an organization
You will analyze the case study entitled “Engstrom Auto Mirror Plant: Motivating in Good Times and Bad,” which you purchased from Harvard Business Review as part of your required resources. The case study will present a list of known organizational issues. You will apply knowledge of human behavior theories and concepts to properly identify and analyze the multiple root causes of the organizational issues from a human behavior perspective. Your analysis will include an examination of the resulting impact of relevant theories and concepts
After identifying and analyzing the multiple root causes and their impact from a human behavior perspective, you will develop targeted solutions that are a direct remedy to the organizational issues. This section of the final project will allow you to practice application of human behavior theories and concepts aimed at improving organizational effectiveness and leading organizations in a proactive rather than a reactive manner. Throughout your case study analysis, you will validate your insights with information from a variety of research sources
Upon completion of your case study analysis and recommendation of target solutions, you will analyze workplace issues from a past or present place of employment from a human behavior perspective. As with your case study analysis, you will develop targeted solutions that are a direct remedy to the organizational issues.
