From the Back Cover:

How does Organizational Behavior affect your life?

The study of Organizational Behavior is dedicated to illuminating both the nature of organizations and the roles we play in them. This book is a concise, sophisticated introduction to both sides of this important discipline: micro (motivation, perception, communication, group dynamics, leadership) and macro (organizational structure, culture, environment, and change). It will familiarize students with all the terms and concepts they need to understand OB and its application in modern organizations. Teachers will find it flexible and thorough, an ideal primer for use with cases, readings, experiential exercises, or simulations.

Here’s a brief look at what’s new in the Sixth Edition:

  • Focus on information and how IT is reshaping business organizations and related processes.
  • Additional coverage on the implications of the growing use of self-service technologies, boundary-less careers, the fear surrounding terrorist attacks, global virtual teams, leadership styles, appreciative inquiry, organizational resizing, and workplace recovery.
  • Expanded discussions and applications, including emotional intelligence, knowledge management, social identity theory, executive coaching, the changing role of team leadership, and organizational strategies to exert control over the environment.
  • Revised emphasis on the evolution of organizational forms.  The chapter on organizational structure and design also includes a discussion of cellular organizational forms.

Like its predecessors, this Sixth Edition continues to provide anyone interested in the subject with a solid, completely up-to-date foundation in OB.
