Welcome to the Organizational Behavior (OB) Division of the Academy of Management. We are a vibrant community of scholars, teachers, consultants, practitioners, and graduate students from over 60 countries around the world. Our 6,000+ members seek to advance the development of scholars and scholarship within the OB domain, are devoted to understanding individuals and groups in an organizational context, and engage in research, teaching, and consulting that improves the workplace, organizational functioning, and management practice.
Programming sponsored and developed by the OB Division is focused on three priorities: rigor, relevance, and relationships.
- We promote and encourage rigorous scholarship, teaching, and consulting that relies on valid evidence and the highest quality scientific research.
- We encourage scholarship that is relevant, practical, and in pursuit of answers to the most challenging questions about the workplace.
- We strive to develop a collaborative, supportive, and inclusive community of scholars, teachers, consultants, and practitioners.
