In response to the need for an alternative to broad-coverage organisational behaviour books, Vecchio has written Organizational Behavior: Core Concepts. With solid coverage of theory, research and practice, this new edition provides the foundation for understanding micro and macro views of organisational behaviour. This edition has been reduced in length for a more concise focus on contemporary core concepts. Themes of motivation, diversity, total quality management, international issues, alternative work strategies and leadership are strong throughout the text. All opening vignettes have been updated to reflect current issues and short stories based on real organisations lend a real-world perspective to chapter topics. Features: * Themes of motivation, diversity, total quality management, international issues, alternative work strategies, and leadership are strong throughout the text. * Video cases and a set of cases after each major section enhance chapter topics. * "An Inside Look" boxed features help to illustrate the applications of organizational behavior principles. They provide current examples drawn from a variety of real corporations and businesses, and they emphasize aspects of ethics, diversity, and international issues as they apply to the field of organizational behavior. New to this edition: * The text has been reduced in length. Its more concise focus on contemporary core concepts makes it more accessible to students and gives instructors greater freedom in designing courses incorporating their own supplemental materials. * The opening vignettes have been updated to reflect current issues. Short stories based on real organizations give a true-to-life flavor to the chapter topics. * Each chapter is followed by a Critical Incident, a short case for discussion that applies to chapter concepts. An Experiential Exercise is also included for each chapter, and is designed for both group and individual use.
