9780073530451: Organizational Behavior

In its tradition of being an up-to-date, relevant and user-driven textbook, Kreitner and Kinicki's approach to organisational behaviour is based on the authors' belief that reading a comprehensive textbook is hard work; however, the process should be interesting and sometimes even fun. The authors' commitment to continuous improvement makes complex ideas understandable through clear and concise explanations, contemporary examples, a visually appealing photo/art program, and/or learning exercises. The authors respond to user feedback by ensuring the text covers the very latest OB research and practices.

1,385 source material citations are dated 2008-2009 with over 1/3 of those referencing 2009.

Key topics, such as diversity in organisations, ethics, and globalisation, are recommended by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

Wolf branding book cover: Wolves remain a central theme for Kreitner and Kinicki because they view wolves as an instructive and inspiring metaphor for modern Organizational Behavior. Wolves are dedicated team players, great communicators, and adaptable. These are quintessential attributes for success in today's workplace.

From the Author:

Why did I write this book?   People frequently ask me why I decided to write a book on Organizational Behavior.   The answer is three fold. First, I wanted to write a book on this topic because of my desire to influence how students think about the best way to influence and manage others, particularly in today's team-based organizations.    In a small way, I hope that our book positively impacts the way managers manage, thereby having a positive effect on the lives of others.   My goal is to influence the lives of others! The second reason revolves around the quality of textbooks that existed when Bob Kreitner--my coauthor--and I began writing the 1st edition of this book in 1984.   At that time, most books were one color; dry to read, and not very practical.   Bob and I set out to create a textbook that was unlike any other on the market.   Our goal was to create an interesting, practical, and research-based book that students would want to keep for future reference.   The final reason revolves around Bob.   Bob is a successful book writer and teacher and I wanted to learn from one of the best. He was also my friend.   While I first turned down his first offer to coauthor this book with him, I changed my mind when he asked a year later because he promised to mentor me through the process.   It's been one of the best working relationship and personal friendships in my life!
Users of this book can expect to read an up-to-date, practical, interesting, and easy to read treatment about the field of organizational behavior.
