It provides readers with increased awareness of the changing roles of employees through recent technological advances such as utilizing the Internet. This edition features increased emphasis on globalization and includes US, Canadian, and other international case studies and experiential exercises to heighten sensitivity to international market concerns.

From the Back Cover:

In today's changing, dynamic, and increasingly global work environment, business students need more than talent.

It is important for students to have a firm foundation of basic skills and competencies-in addition to their talent and natural leadership qualities-so they can thrive in whatever area of business they choose. The renowned author team that has served as the voice of OB through ten editions has made significant improvements to their already sound pedagogy, current research, theory, and rich framework of personal and organizational skills. With a greater emphasis on ethics, leadership, and sustainability, the 11th Edition of Organizational Behavior gives students a rich portfolio of personal and organizational skills that will enable them to achieve and sustain the brilliant career that awaits them in today's global society.
