I’m studying for my Management class and need an explanation.
Topic: The Impacts of Perception and Attribution on Organizational Decision-Making at Various Levels
The purpose of this assignment is for you to describe how perception and attribution have impacted organizational decision-making within the music industry. You may choose to present these effects on individual, group, and/or organizational decision-making.

The text below is only supplemental and the readings in this book are completely optional. This book is helpful if you have been away from the world of organizational behavior for a long time and need a refresher on terms, concepts, etc… These chapters explain how structure, culture, and change contribute to organizational behavior.
