INTRODUCTIONOrganisation behaviour is the analyses of the behaviour of individuals that influences theimpact of their behaviours in the organisation. And how they can apply their knowledge andbehavioural factors for the improvement of the organisation. Organisational behaviour is used formanaging the teams and it helps them to understand the human behaviour. Understanding of thehuman behaviour helps the management to get a insight of them and then they can use theirleadership styles to motivate them to work efficiently and attain organisational goals. It helps tolearn about the overall personality of the employees working there in the organisation includingtheir knowledge and their attitudinal behaviours(Agarwal Datta and Bhargava,2012.). In thepresent report, the importance of organisational behaviour is going to be discussed and bygaining insight through the case let we know how the individual behave in different situationsand with different people. As individual behaviour is influenced by variety of factors at work,leaders and managers affect their behaviour. This report will help us to understand how to dealwith the different organisational culture and how to make it effective.AC1.1Compare and contrast the organisational structures and culture of city college and carrental enterprise.Organisational structures : are the process of working of the organisation whereasorganisational culture refers to various rules(Alfes, Shantz and Soane, 2013), beliefs and valuesof the organisation's members.According to the case-let ; company A has a flat organisation structure whereas company B has atall organisational structure.BasisCompany A: city collegeCompany B: Car rentalenterpriseOrganisational structureFlat: this structure is followedin small organisation as theydont follow the hierarchicalstructureTall: they follow the hierarchystructure as they are bigorganisation and requires asystematic structure, otherwisethings cant be managed.Chain of commandShort: they focus on chain ofcommand and these structuresLong: many managers arethere in these structures, so the
empowers the employees.chain of command increases.Organisational culture : it refers to the beliefs and values of the individuals working in anorganisation. And the culture that is adopted in the organisation(Ashby 2013). According toCharles handy organisational culture has four types and they are:Task Culture: this culture motivates the team efforts, in this the employees cametogether to form a team usually of 5-6 embers to solve a particular problem. Person culture: this culture gives importance to persons more than the organisation, thegoals of persons are more important than the goals of organisation. Because of thisorganisation suffers.Role culture: in this type of culture whoever has specialisation are assigned theresponsibility for that only and they are accountable for it., and the best is extracted oputof them.Power: the power is not delegated in this type of organisation culture. Here employeesdon't have any option but to follow their superiors..this is not fair approach(Bird,Saalfeld, and Wüs 2010), leaders may get biased in this type of culture.AC1.2.The relationship between an organisation’s structure and culture and the effects of bothon the performance of the organisation.Organisational culture and structure are both interconnected. City college has a flatstructure as they have less number of employees and have only two management levels and theyhave al the responsibilities for the execution of work. Because of this they are usually pressurisedand they fall short on deadlines. They follow power culture which vests all the power in theirhands of the administration and the powers are centralised(Einarsen,and et.al 2011). They didnot delegate the powers and responsibilities it sows lack of trust of management on theemployees and hence it decreases the morale of the employees and decreases efficiency of work.Whereas in car rental enterprises the company follows the tall structure as its a hugecompany with over 75000 employees so they need a proper hierarchical structure and themanagement follows the task organisational culture and they delegate the responsibilities anddecentralises then power. In task structure the team is formed for solving any kind of problemand it increases the efficiency of the team and results in enhanced morale of employees.
