Expectancy theory proposes that people engage in particular behaviors based on the probability that the behavior will be followed by a certain outcome and the value of that outcome (Vroom, 1964).Transactional leadership stems from more traditional views of workers and organizations, and it involves the position power of the leader to use followers for task completion (Burns, 1978).Leadership, then, is not only the process and activity of the person who is in a leadership position, but also encompasses the environment this leader creates and how this leader responds to the surroundings, as well as the particular skills and activities of the people being led. Transformational leadership, however, searches for ways to help motivate followers by satisfying higher-order needs and more fully engaging them in the process of the work (Bass, 1985).Goal setting theory takes a somewhat different approach, suggesting that people are motivated to achieve goals, and their intentions drive their behavior (Locke, 1968).Additional motivation theories include expectancy theory, equity theory, goal setting, and

Initially, he developed the Your Feelings About Your Role (YFAYR) Scale, that includes 40 items which measure distance between roles, stagnation of roles, role ambiguity, erosion, overload, isolation, inadequacy and self role distance. The YFAYR scale had been enhanced by Pareek
They also have been accredited with been a prime mover in Organisational Behaviour as it was the first experiment which essentially emphasised the importance of human needs in the workplace. The experiments modernized management principles throughout the world. The implications of the Hawthorne Studies inspired theorists such as Abraham Maslow and Douglas McGregor to conduct further research in this field. Key conclusions from the experiments emphasized the importance of having an in depth understanding of people’s feelings and how they impact on work productivity. Elton Mayo perfectly illustrated this by saying “One friend, one person who is truly understanding, who takes the trouble to listen to us as we consider our problems, can change our whole outlook on the work”.
Theories and researchers are going rapidly in management field, especially organizational culture which becomes an important part of management and I will never forget the core of management which is total quality management. All companies try to apply Quality management on their strategies to improve their performance. This case study aims to show the relationship between total quality management practices and organizational culture and also show the reasons of recognizing the specific cultures that verify the successful accomplishment of total quality management practices. Based on some literature review, suppose hypotheses and developing a questionnaire which used for implement reliability. This applies the experimental data from 194 organizations
In this discipline, concepts of Psychology and Sociology blends together and targets the influence of people to one another. These two disciplines compliments each other in OB. Teamwork and cooperation occurs between the individual and groups within the organization. Anthropology is the study of societies to learn about human being and their activities.

As stated by McCampbell, Clare and Gitters (1999) taken from Manasco (1996), define knowledge management as the strategies and processes of identifying, capturing and leveraging knowledge to enhance competitiveness. Knowledge management leveraging on knowledge in order to sustain competitive advantage, create, develop, use and re-use knowledge for the purpose of innovation. According to Kalkan (2008) taken from Nonaka and Takeuchi (1995); Davenport and Prusak (1998); Hall and Paradice, (2005) stated that knowledge management is currently receiving great attention from both academics and practitioners. Ratcliffe-Martin, Coakes and Sugden, (2000) stated that knowledge management has become key domain for both practitioners and management researchers.
Management Develop Plan Organizational Behavior (OB) studies various factors which impact how people and groups act, think, feel and respond to their work and organization and how organizations respond to their environment. For the purposes of this paper I will focus primarily on the factors of Organizational Behavior that affect individuals In this paper I will define the principles of OB and discuss how they relate to my person. I will also explain how obtaining knowledge of these principles and applying them to my life have allowed me to develop a realistic career plan where I will most likely succeed. Much research has been done regarding Personality, Cognitive Ability, Work Motivation, and Job Design. I will use this information as well
According to the words of Yale (2010) the main objective of management research is identify a proper solution for the management issue. Epistemological perspective is highly useful for researchers and companies for managing the core business issues in an effective way. (Fundneider 2014, p.346). Researchers are trying find an solution for the problem, while analyzing the three perspective of epistemological in management research problems such as constructivism, objectivism and subjectivism we can able to understand that we can able to use these perspectives for managing the issues in an effective way (Cunliffe et al 2014,p.278). Actually epistemological perspective shows the connection with reality and research.
