The new CEO of a local company wants to conduct an Organizational Behaviour Audit and has contacted your firm for help. The first deliverable for the project is a Plan for Conducting an Organizational Behaviour Audit that must be presented to the CEO for approval before the actual audit may begin. You have been given the task of producing this plan for your organization.
Write a 3000 word essay (+/- 10%) that provides a comprehensive “Plan for Conducting an Organizational Behaviour Audit.” Your plan must provide the rationale or reason why it is important to understand the organizational behaviour of a company, the areas within the organization that should be assessed in an Organizational Behaviour Audit and the factors that should be evaluated within each area.

1. Why should an organization conduct an Organizational Behaviour Audit?
2. What areas within an organization should be evaluated as part of an Organizational Behaviour Audit?
3. What factors within each area should be evaluated in an Organizational Behaviour Audit?
