Main goals of these studies were what are the conditions within the organisations for employess and how can these be optimised, in relation to the development of organizational behavior theories.
The base of Organizational Behavior (OB) was developed by practical scientific management studies like the Hawthorne Studies. These studies showed interesting results and theories on job performance, team management and job satisfaction. Famous researchers of the last century were i.e. Henri Fayol, Frederick Herzberg, Abraham Maslow, David McClelland, Victor Vroom and Douglas McGregor.
