Applied Behavior Analysis and Organizations
For your discussion, you will take on your very first assignment as a behavioral consulting intern and provide an overview of Organizational Behavior Management (OBM). Your discussion will ask you to create a persuasive explanation of OBM and Performance Management (PM).
Today is your orientation for your behavior consulting internship with Acme Behavior Consulting Inc. You have a strong foundation in the principles of behavior analysis and are excited you landed an internship where you can expand your knowledge and apply these concepts to the world of organizations using Organization Behavior Management (OBM). Your supervisor wants you to get comfortable explaining OBM to individuals in organizations. Your first assignment is to familiarize yourself with the basics of OBM and prepare yourself for interactions with clients by fluently describing how OBM compares to more typical management practices.
Define OBM in your own words including the role of behavior analytic principles.
Discuss PM and how it can be used to improve performance in organizations.
Include a discussion of common business practices and why the behavior analytic approach should be used instead.
Include a discussion of each of the points above. Your discussion should be informative and convincing, as if you were “selling” the OBM approach to stakeholders in organizations.
