ORGB 300 – ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR
Written Case Assignment (Highway Administrator)

Spring 2013

Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to give you the opportunity to: (a) better understand theories and
concepts we discussed in this course, (b) implement theoretical concepts into practice, and (c) improve your
critical thinking and writing skills.
Please carefully read the Highway Administrator case study (located on the second page), and then prepare a
written summary of your assessment about the three questions below. This assignment requires critical thinking
in addition to an understanding of the course material. To answer the questions, please use the relevant
concepts and theories discussed in Chapters 2, 3, and 5, which include job performance, organizational
commitment, job satisfaction, value-percept theory, equity theory, expectancy theory, and goal-setting theory
among other concepts. You must use and properly cite at least five external sources (e.g., books, journal
articles. etc.) not including your textbook and lecture slides, to further explain your answers.

Questions:
1. What do you think will happen as a result of the highway administrator’s goal-setting program? Analyze the
implementation process and identify problems of the program with the relevant concepts and theories from Chapters 2, 3, and 5.
2. Compare the desired outcomes of the highway administrator's goal-setting program to your predicted
outcomes of the program such as performance quantity, quality of performance, and job satisfaction. Support
your analysis with the relevant concepts and theories from Chapters 2, 3, and 5.
3. Assuming that it was important to you to resolve the pothole problem, describe what you would have done
differently (or why you would have employed the same program) if you were the highway administrator.
Support your analysis with the relevant concepts and theories from Chapters 2, 3, and 5.
