Steve McShane's new text describes Organisational Behaviour theories and concepts in the context of emerging workplace realities in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and neighbouring Pacific Rim countries. Written for its age, the text pays special attention to the ways in which infrastructure is being replaced by knowledge; direct supervision with self-leadership; hierarchies with networks; committees with virtual teams; and the way technical competence has been matched by emotional intelligence. The text is founded in local examples and case studies to help students understand OB concepts, as well as anecdotes and stories that effectively communicate the relevance and excitement of OB.
