King and Lawley's market-leading text offering the most critical, practical, and accessible approach to the subject.
Woven throughout the book is the unique running case study, based on Junction Hotel, which now includes some new challenges facing the management team. This innovative fictional case helps students see how theory translates into practice in a familiar setting, and with a wide range of memorable characters.
A wealth of relatable, real-life cases drawn from multinational organizations and social enterprises across a range of industries brings organizational behaviour to life. This edition includes cases on the BBC, Deliveroo, and Adidas, as well as social movements and issues such as the Presidents Club scandal, and the gender pay gap.
All the core topics found on undergraduate modules are introduced, while the book also goes a step further to critically analyse some of the mainstream theories. Students are encouraged to develop a critical mind-set of their own through the structured review questions, which coach them to explain, analyse, then apply.
The text is supported by an extensive range of online resources to help students take their learning further.

"[My students] found it very readable and loved the running case study, which made it more interesting for them. They liked the balance of theory and real life case studies/references. They felt they had purchased a text which was worthwhile and helpful to them."
--Dawn Williams, University of Westminster
"A very thorough and engaging book which from the first page acknowledges that OB covers a range of issues across a number of disciplines. I particularly liked Chapter One as it introduces the background to OB and how students need to start thinking critically. I also like the way each
chapter identifies the main theorists and applies these theories in context."
--Alison Mackiewicz, Aberystwyth University
"A good introductory level OB book which has a good coverage of OB and Management topics but is presented in a clear way to give the students an understanding of the key topics whilst also introducing them to critical perspectives and wider social/political issues."
--Teresa Oultram, Keele University
