Organizational behaviour knowledge is for everyone not just traditional managers. The authors believe that everyone who works in and around organizations need to understand and make use of OB knowledge. The reality is that people in organizations - sales representatives, accountants, technicians, nurses, and others - are assuming more responsibilities as companies remove layers of bureaucracy and give teams more autonomy over their work. This work helps every employee make sense of organizational behaviour and gives him or her the tools to work more effectively within organizations. The book helps students understand and influence behaviour in organizations by showing the connection between contemporary theories and actual events in organizations. This theory-practice link relies on real life examples to help students understand organizational behviour concepts. Anecdotes and stories effectively communicate the relevance and excitement of organizational behaviour by bringing abstract concepts closer to reality. The text also includes emerging topics, such as: knowledge management, virtual teams, self-leadership, emotional intelligence, and contingent workforce. This text is founded on contemporary organizational behaviour scholarship and uses a variety of sources (management, marketing and MIS journals as well as a variety of non-academic sources such as the "LA Times", "Across the Board", and "People Management") to research the literature on every major organizational behaviour topic.
