Volkswagen\’s Organisational Failure

Locally, nationally and internationally, there are many organisations whose failure has been determined at least in part by key organisational behaviour and people factors. Recently, the media has reported on anumber of organisations that have engaged in unethical (wrong or bad) or grossly incompetent behaviour where organisational behaviour and people issues played a key role. For example, culture, leadership, and motivation and reward systems were antecedents to Volkswagen’s disgrace in 2015, which is having severe consequences for its stakeholders.
