A course in two parts

A Course in Two Parts

  • First Part: Pietro Garibaldi

    • Personnel Economics

  • Second Part:Human

    • Organizational Behaviour


Pesonnel economics pe and organizational behaviour ob

Pesonnel Economics (PE) and Organizational Behaviour (OB)

  • This course deals with labor, the most important factor in the economic system (there would no economic system without people!).

  • …..but economics has to do with rationality, with cost benefit analysis,…. while people are human beings, they have feelings, culture.

  • Traditionally, LE and OB specialists have not spoken to each other….


Human resource managers about economists

Human Resource Managers about Economists

  • …economics can not be useful for managing human resources. Economic theory assumes that individual hate effort, behave opportunistically, have conflicting obejcts. In the economist mind, individuals are lazy, dishonest, and inside firms they have conflicting objectives. (O’Reilly e Pfeiffer 2000)


Economists versus management science

Economists versus Management Science

  • …all these emphasis on case studies. How can we generalize?

  • In case studies all depends on the speific setting of the firm;

  • To understand the world we need well spelled out theory, starting from obvious assumptions, down to empirical predictions

  • Without models, we do not really learn much


Economics and management

….Economics and Management

  • But you are taking a degree in International Economics and Management!

  • So somehow the two disciplines must have a way to talk to each-other!

  • The spirit of this course, is to show that to be a good human resource manager, you need both skills: sound economic analysis and good management experience
