For each of the above areas, you must include a summary of the item (and if practical, also include a copy of the item). Next you are to identify the OB concepts or theories which apply to the chosen item, and explain how they connect. Then you are to judge the significance of the item (i.e. Why is it important? Does it align with theory or run counter to the theoretical ideal?).
Think of the three following questions in your analysis. Marks will be provided for correct identification, quality explanation, and critique/judgement of each item (see details on grading sheet on page 4):
- What does this item tell you about organizational behaviour?
- How does it apply to what you have learned throughout class?
- How much does it seem to follow/refute the theoretical ideal?
