9780789012043: Organizational Behavior

Develop effective management skills with up-to-date theory and research!

An effective understanding of workplace behavior requires a solid grounding in both principles and practice. Organizational Behavior provides both. This comprehensive textbook uses realistic case examples, self-tests, and plentiful tables and figures to illustrate the principles of organizational behavior.

Each chapter begins by posing a difficult work situation, which may be a conflict, a problem with motivation, or an issue of diversity. Then it goes on to discuss the principles and theories that apply to the case, returning to it at times to see how various strategies work. The start-of-chapter problems catch students’interest, and the clear explications of theory give them the concepts they need to come up with innovative solutions.

The classic areas of ethics, problem employees, motivation, conflict, and organizational culture are amply covered, but Organizational Behavior also deals with areas too often neglected, including:

  • the physical atmosphere of the workplace
  • the effects of new technologies on workers
  • the pitfalls and opportunities of globalization
  • diversity and multiculturalism in the workplace
  • both informal and formal organizational structure
  • workplace gossip and the office grapevine
Organizational Behavior integrates theory with practice so that students learn to apply concepts to real-world problems. This comprehensive textbook, the second edition of Human Behavior at Work, also features discussion questions, additional cases, self-tests, and useful tables and figures. A teacher's manual with lecture notes and a test bank is also available.
