Employee Impact on the Plan


An organization can come up with the best strategy but in order to execute and be effective/successful it takes human capital to implement. Employees (management and staff alike) need to be bought into any strategy and its proposed results—this can make or break a plan. Understanding organizational behavior is an important part of plan execution.

Using the module readings, Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, respond to the following for your own organization or an organization you know well:

    What are the individual behaviors that you can observe that have the most dramatic impact on the organization’s performance (good or bad)?
    What within the work setting drives these behaviors?
    What are the implications of these behaviors for recruiting and training new employees?

Write your initial response in approximately 300 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
