This new edition builds on the strengths and successes of the first edition and has been fully updated to reflect changes in the world of work, following the global financial crisis. 

The authors combine a managerial approach, focusing on practical, real-world applications, with a  rigorous critical perspective that analyses the research behind the theories. The text addresses alternative theoretical perspectives, in parallel to the introduction of new worldwide cases and examples. New pedagogical features, such as the Ethical Dilemma and Critical Thinking boxes, reinforce the critical approach. The concise coverage of the core topics can be applied to both one-semester and year-long teaching and learning patterns.

From the Back Cover:

  • Can leadership theories developed in the West be applied when managing a multicultural workforce?
  • To what extent can a strong and unified organizational culture help achieve competitive advantage?
  • What are the possible negative or dysfunctional aspects of group working?
  • How can managers foster loyalty and commitment from the increasing number of remote or teleworkers?

This edition of Organizational Behaviour addresses the complex issues that knowledge-based work organizations face in the early 21st century.

The authors combine a managerial approach, aimed to help existing and aspiring managers meet increasingly challenging performance targets, with a rounded and critical perspective, that questions and looks deeper into the research behind the theories.

Their concise coverage of the core topics can be applied to both one-semester and year-long teaching and learning patterns. In addition, this colourful and well-presented text includes:

  • Real world examples in Opening Vignettes, OB in Action boxes, and numerous short and longer Case Studies
  • Effective Manager boxes that offer practical advice and checklists
  • Counterpoint boxes that highlight negative occurrences within workplaces and alternative political perspectives
  • Research in Action boxes that link to additional journal articles available on the book companion website

Individual and Group activities, Running Projects, Discussion Questions and Assignments
