In my personal opinion no subject is worthless. Knowledge, any knowledge is better than no knowledge. Whatever you decide to study will be of benefit to you in the long term, maybe not directly but you will profit from it. But why should you or anyone else study Organizational Behavior (OB)? I mean have you ever heard of a career path leading to a top position like vice president of OB or a chief OB officer?
Well it is worth studying Organizational Behavior and here's why. Organizational Behavior is the study of what people think, feel, and do in and around organizations and almost everybody in the world works in organizations. Therefore a thorough understanding of the mechanics of organizations will assist greatly with predicting and influencing the behavior of others in organizational settings. The vast majority of disciplines of study are narrow dealing and confined with the parameters of their field. But almost everybody in the world requires knowledge of Organizational Behavior so as to address people issues when trying to apply concepts and strategies and the implementation of successful strategies to further the aims and goals of everybody with that organizational structure.
As an Organizational Behaviour scholar you will systematically study individual, team, and structural characteristics that influence behavior within organizations. OB studies have been around for a long time; the texts of the infamous Italian renaissance philosopher Niccolo Machiavelli laid the foundation for contemporary work on organizational power and politics but it fully emerged as a distinct field around the 40s.
