Summary

This revision of ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR includes a renewed emphasis on the text's multifaceted approach, which is reflected in a new subtitle: SCIENCE, THE REAL WORLD, AND YOU. "Science" refers to roots of the discipline and the way the book is anchored in research tradition--both classic research as well as leading-edge scholarship. "The Real World" reflects current trends in organizations and takes shape as examples from all types of organizations. "You" reflects the opportunities to grow and develop both as individuals and organizations. The book helps students learn not only the concepts and theories that enhance the management of human behavior at work, but also how to practice these skills. A wealth of proven features, cases, exercises, and examples--including six new focus companies--stimulate interest and discussion; demonstrate how theories and research apply; and prompt cognitive and skill-based learning. Established organizational behavior topics are discussed, including motivation, leadership, teamwork, and communication, as are emerging issues shaping the field. The exciting theme of change clearly demonstrates how attitudes and behaviors within an organization are affected by change and the new opportunities and experiences change presents. Supporting themes focus on globalization, diversity, and ethics.
