In order to demonstrate concepts of organisational behaviour, DavidMichael & Co. has been taken into consideration. This organisation deals in food and beveragesflavour sector of UK with a turnover of around £10M to £20M. This report analyse influence ofculture, power and politics on individuals, team behaviour and performance. Furthermoretheories of motivation are applied to reach organisational goal and building of effective team isbuild. Apart from this philosophies and concepts are applied within organisation.TASK 1P1 Organisation’s culture, politics and power that influence individual and team behaviour andperformanceOrganisational behaviour is affected by different factors in multinational companies theyinclude development of systems and technologies, their implementation and many more. If anychanges are made within system then performance of employees and profitability of organisationis impacted. Apart from this, there are other factors also which affects performance of individual,team and organisation. They are culture, politics and power. Leadership practices are dependenton power of individuals and politics which is exists within organisation. These two factors canhave worst and best impact on organisation.Organisational Culture:This refers to implicit beliefs, values, assumptions and ways inwhich interaction occurs and contribute in psychological and unique social environment of anorganisation. It includes expectations, philosophy, experiences and values which will guidebehaviour of individual within organisation.To understand this concept, David Michael & Co. enterprise is using Handy's culturaltypology. This organisation provides wide variety in their food products with American flavour.Around 40,000 items are produced by them in different flavours. Charles Handy has founded thistypology, in this culture has been classified by four components, they are mentioned below:
Power culture: Power is with few people only like Board of Directors, CEO or topmanagement. These people decides what rules and regulations are to be applied withinorganisation (Carlos Pinho, Paula Rodrigues and Dibb, 2014). Employees will be judged on basisof what they have achieved rather than how it is achieved. Within David Michael organisation,power is concentrated among few people. It is essential for organisation as it will help them indecision-making by which effective decisions can be made and directions can be given on basisof that.Task culture: This culture is formed within organisation when individuals work as ateam to accomplish particular project. Power will be shifted within team depending uponproblem and team members. David Michael organisation opted for this culture as tasks orprojects will be completed in stipulated time duration only when if team comprises of mix ofleadership, personalities and skills (Coccia and Cadario, 2014). This will lead to enhancedcreativity and productivity. There is no individual source of power and team may create theirown objectives.Person Culture: When this culture prevails within organisation, then individual look atthemselves as superior and unique. It indicates that different individuals are working within sameorganisation. They comprises of same expertise, backgroundand similar training like they maybe accountants . Each individual have power in this culture.Role culture:This is based on certain set of rules. Each individual knows their roles andresponsibilities. Power can be ascertained by position of individual within organisation. Decision-making is slow in such culture and they are hardly open to take any kind of risk. Such kind oforganisations tend to be bureaucratic (Coccia, 2014).Task culture should be followed by management of David Michael organisation as teamsare formulated to deal with specific project based on skills required to accomplish that. Thisculture will help organisation to complete project within stipulated time and each individual canhave power depending upon their skills and knowledge related with specified project.From this, it can be evaluated that power, culture and politics play vital role in analysingoverall behaviour of organisation, which includes performance of individual and team.
