Authors: John Nkeobuna Nnah Ugoani
Pages: 121-129
Organizational behaviour involves the design of work as well as the psychological, emotional and interpersonal behavioural dynamics that influence organizational performance. Management as a discipline concerned with the study of overseeing activities and supervising people to perform specific tasks is crucial in organizational behaviour and corporate effectiveness. Management emphasizes the design, implementation and arrangement of various administrative and organizational systems for corporate effectiveness. While the individuals, and groups bring their skills, knowledge, values, motives, and attitudes into the organization, and thereby influencing it, the organization, on the other hand, modifies or restructures the individuals and groups through its structure, culture, policies, politics, power, and procedures, and the roles expected to be played by the people in the organization. This study conducted through the exploratory research design involved 125 participants, and result showed strong positive relationship between the variables of interest. The study was never exhaustive due to limitations in terms of time and current relevant literature, therefore, further study could examine the relationship between personality characteristics and performance in the public sector, where productivity is not outstanding, when compared with the private sector. Based on the result of this investigation it was recommended that organizations should provide emotional intelligence programmes for their membership as an important pattern of increasing co-operative behaviours and corporate effectiveness.

This paper scrutinizes Determinants of Capital Structure: A study on some selected corporate firms in Bangladesh. We have taken 10 out of 37 listed companies of DSE dividing into two sectors i.e. Pharmaceuticals and chemicals and Tannery sector, five years data from 2013 to 2017 has been collected from respective annual reports. Total number of observations was 50. There are different factors that affect a firm's capital structure decision. We use leverage (D/E ratio) as dependent variable and independent variables are profitability, tangibility, tax, size, growth, non-debt tax shield (NDTS) and financial costs. By using Descriptive Statistical Analysis, Correlation Analysis and Regression Analysis tools we find that Tangibility, size, NDTS, and financial costs are positively related with leverage and Profitability, tax, and growth are negatively related with leverage. In our analysis we see profitability, tangibility of asset, growth and non-debt tax shield have significant association. So when we take capital structure decision of the above firms we should consider profitability, tangibility of asset, growth and non-debt tax shield because other independent variables are insignificant in the context of Bangladesh economy.
