Organisational behaviour has been continually changing since the early systematic theory of organizational behaviour. Post World War II, techno-scientific progress was the centre of it. Business schools in US made considerable efforts in its growth based on the scientific rationality and managing progress. Between mid 60s and late 70s, Organisational behaviour studies flourished in European Management schools where methods shifted to social sciences from natural science and the priorities were incremental change rather than planned change. Towards the end of cold war and collapse of USSR, markets around the world became revolutionary. Liberalisation of markets and globalization of management education played a significant role in bringing rapid change through leadership. And organizational behaviour was drawn on corporate anthropology. Mid 90s to 2008 has been the era of Globalization and financialisation. Technological innovation and multinational culture thrived in this era. Big corporate partnerships, merger and acquisition, and outsourcing transformed the organisational behaviour to suit the organisational requirements. In early 2008 when USA and major economies in Europe loomed under financial crisis and credit crunch, India, China, Brazil, Russia etc emerged as the leaders. This economic turbulence has expanded frontier and basis of organisational behaviour. The conceptual shift from modernization and performance to ethical and responsible organisations and fair society is the result of lessons learnt from this economic recession. Today, organisations are concerned about managing global and local operations unlike networks and relations few years ago. These transformations in the organisational behaviour may be seen as evolution but if we carefully analyze the socio-economic environment of that era, there is a cause-effect relationship between the two.
