18308. ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR AT WAL-MART. This paper examines how Wal-Mart has applied three organizational concepts – organizational culture, communications, and human resources practices. Providing numerous examples from the business press, the analysis considers the extent to which Wal-Mart’s application of these three main organizational behavior concepts has been successful, unsuccessful, or some combination of both. It is argued that Wal-Mart makes conscious use of these concepts in an effort to control workers, improve efficiencies, and ensure consistency in operations. The paper concludes that Wal-Mart’s “culture of control” and its supporting and reinforcing organizational behavior does not necessarily produce optimal results. In recent years especially, Wal-Mart’s organizational behavior has been a lightening rod for criticism and an adverse influence on the company’s reputation.

17422. TOTAL QUALITY MANAGEMENT & HRM. This paper explores the TQM-HRM link and considers the proposition that Total Quality Management gives Human Resources Management a more strategic role in the organization. Argues that TQM initiatives often do not meet expectations because of a failure to attend to some of TQM’s ‘soft-side’ issues such as employee training and development and organizational culture. Maintains that HRM can facilitate successful TQM implementation both by serving as a role model and by acting as TQM’s change agent throughout the organization. Thus, by integrating TQM and HRM, TQM becomes more effective, and HRM takes on a more strategic role in the organization.
