Behavioural Science book
Behavioural science in the industrial sense concerns the observation, possible explanation and hopeful prediction of the behaviour of individuals and groups of people in the work situation. It is not really a new science but is based upon both psychological and sociological theory and practice, as a result of the concentration by numerous researchers on areas such as management style and job satisfaction which play such a major part in industrial effectiveness. Although the theories of behavioural science are not as exact as the laws of physical science, they nevertheless contain a great deal of valid knowledge which can be applied to our seemingly irrational human behaviour.
