Organizational Behavior Management

Behavioral principles have been applied in a variety of settings, including business and industry. OBM can be seen as the intersection between behavioral science research and organizational environments that need improvement.

There are two basic types of interventions that organizations can use to improve output-based management: antecedent and consequence. Antecedents include task clarification, equipment modification, goal setting, prompting and training. Consequences allow managers to influence employee behavior by providing feedback on performance or through rewards for success such as bonus checks or a promotion in rank.

Consequence-based interventions include feedback, praise and monetary and nonmonetary incentives. Feedback involves delivering information about past performance to the employee which can vary according to format (verbal, written or graphic) delivered by a manager-supervisor, consultant-researcher or fellow colleague. Monetary incentive includes money contingent on performance with in practice combining it often times with benefits such as tangible items for example discounts at stores like Target if you save enough points within a time frame of six months then get discounted 10%.
