Dear ICFAI ian,

Here is the matter u asked for.

The field of OB attempts to understand human behavior in Organizational settings, the organization itself, and the individual organization interface. All these areas are highly interrelated. Thus, although it is possble to focus on only one of these areas at a time, a complete understanding of Ob requires knowledge of all three areas. Thus the field of OB is exciting and complex.

Environment -->Human behavior in organization settings<-->individual organization interface.

OB has three levels of performance analyses viz., The Individual, The group and the Formal ORganization.

OB is a contingency orientation approach that is directed towards developing managerial actions that are most appropriate for a specific situation and the people involved.

OB is a source of knowledge and repository of information by theorists, researchers and practitioners.

OB is science and art as it contains the skill and knowledge of applying it.
