Using Observational Research In Applied Organizational Behavior Classes
Abstract: Observational research is underused in the management field. However, observation is a method through which students can learn what managers do during everyday work routines. For management students, observational research projects offer concrete evidence and experience to help shape career plans. Incorporating such a project into an applied organizational behavior course offers an opportunity for students to learn project management skills, networking behaviors, data collection techniques, basic statistical analysis, and the opportunity to present findings in a professional manner. This tool conveys the importance of the scientific method and positions future managers to use evidence-based management practices.
