Understanding Organizational Behavior represents the solid scholarly foundations on which the science of organizational behavior was built, the realities of contemporary life in organizations, and the challenges that constantly present themselves. Our overarching theme of change is accompanied by four supporting subthemes: globalization, diversity, technology, and ethics. Each theme presents its own challenges and presents demands on individuals to learn, grow, and adjust. This text presents the opportunity to learn concepts, ideas, and theories that help enhance the management of human behavior at work.

Review:

"The book is extremely well organized going through key organizational behavior concepts dealing with a person, team, and organization unit of analysis. Well-written text and concise discussions highlight each chapter so that follow-up student questions are limited. I teach many types of students from business, nursing, engineering, and so on that reflect any organization. The book gives good examples for students to compare and contrast their expectations and experiences and this adds to the material I present in class."

"I've adopted this text because it provides students with an excellent comprehensive, yet easy to read, overview of the critical OB topics. Students become engaged with the material and they arrive to class ready to discuss and apply it. They always have clarifying questions for me which indicates that not only are they reading the material, but they are thinking about what the issues mean for them as future leaders. What more can I ask from a textbook? Through reading the text, students gain a wonderful foundation from which I can build during our class. I never have to spend time re-teaching confusing concepts. Instead, because the text is clear, concise and thorough, I get the fabulous opportunity to use class time to make the material come alive."

"In general, I like this book, and think it covers a lot of ground in a very succinct and easy-to-read manner. I'd highly recommend this book to instructors who teach introductory-level OB courses."

"The topics (chapters) covered are appropriate for the title of the text, Understanding Organizational Behavior. I especially like how the first chapter introduces the subject and the other chapters that follow. The chapters are written in an interesting and easy to read manner allowing for the different levels of understanding among students. The graphics and examples used in each chapter add to the understanding and effectiveness of each chapter."
