A group can basically be regarded as several persons who team up to carry out a particular mission. Consequently, group dynamics relate to the mind-set and behavioral attributes of a group (Luthans, 2005). Such dynamics involve the way groups develop their structure as well as the way they function (Robbins, 2004). Basically, the study of group dynamics is an effective way of learning organizational behavior. Essentially, there are two major forms of organizations. These are organizations that are involved in the provision of services and those that are concerned with production of products that consumers make use of.
Generally, both forms of organizations are required to undergo restructuring with regard to external and internal aspects. The restructuring is an important aspect since it ensures that the organizations are profitable. In essence, organizations that offer services the employees are required to contend with change. This is imperative especially where an organization merges with others within different legal systems since employees will then have challenges acclimatizing to the fiscal policies, economy, competition, globalization and other ways in which the other amalgamated organizations are run. This can be attributed to the distinctive nature of organization cultures.
Restructuring is particularly important due to the changes in external factors such as the continued technological and procedural advancement. Consequently, within an organization, the personnel should be trained in order to effectively carry out tasks using new innovations. Increased advancement of technology therefore triggers reformation processes in organizations.
Accordingly, the competition aspect usually affects the way organizations deal with customers. In some instances an organization may have little competition for the goods or services they offer. In such scenario the community may demand the best services and this may lead to outsourcing especially with regard to materials. Subsequently, the staff is usually trained and gain experience that enable them to offer services elsewhere. The experience and training is basically an internal measure.
As regards fiscal policies, accuracy is the most important objective while dealing with such matters. Accuracy essentially assists an organization in the planning sector. As such, the personnel must be informed with regard to relevant billing procedures and regulations. This is usually taken from the premise that consumers often expect quick and precise explanations with regard to every billed service.
The organizational mission mainly relate to the mission statement adapted by organizations with regard to its benefits to the community. As such, the personnel as an internal consideration like to serve as many consumers as possible. The mission aspect of organizations therefore target maximum number of consumers. The behavior of personnel is therefore influenced by organizational mission since it essentially expresses the reason for existence of an organization.
In order to achieve optimal productivity organizations have to effectively deal with the external and internal forces. As such, the effectiveness of an organization is dependent on the way these forces are managed. Having knowledge of a system as well as its development lead to well managed organizations. This is made possible by conducting thorough assessments on things that motivate personnel (Baron, 2008). Such surveys help in the recruiting and retention of employees. The notion and perceptions that individuals have with regard to an organization is that which they feel has been demonstrated by such organization in the past.
