This book was created as an alternative to the usual 600-or-700-page comprehensive textbook in organizational behaviour (OB). It attempts to provide balanced coverage of all the key elements making up the discipline of OB in a style that readers will find both informative and interesting. We’re pleased to say that this text has achieved a wide following in short courses and executive programs and in traditional courses as a companion volume with experiential, skill development, case, and readings books. It is currently used at more than 500 colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. It has also been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Dutch, Polish, Turkish, Danish, and Bahasa Indonesian. What do people like about this book? Surveys of users have found general agreement about the following features. Needless to say, they’ve all been retained in this edition.
■ Balanced topic coverage. Although short in length, this book continues to provide balanced coverage of all the key concepts in OB. This includes not only traditional topics, such as personality, motivation, and leadership, but also cutting-edge issues such as emotions, diversity, negotiation, and teamwork.
■ Writing style. This book is frequently singled out for its fluid writing style and extensive use of examples. Users regularly tell us that they find this book “conversational,” “interesting,” “student friendly,” and “very clear and understandable.”
■ Practicality. This book has never been solely about theory. It’s about using theory to better explain and predict the behavior of people in organizations. In each edition of this book, we have focused on making sure that readers see the link between OB theories, research, and implications for practice.
■ Integration of globalization, diversity, and ethics. The topics of globalization and crosscultural differences, diversity, and ethics are discussed throughout this book. Rather than being presented only in separate chapters, these topics have been woven into the context of relevant issues. Users tell us they find that this integrative approach makes these topics more fully part of OB and reinforces their importance.
■ Comprehensive supplements. This book may be short, but not on supplements. It comes with a complete, high-tech support package that includes a comprehensive Instructor’s Manual and Test Bank and PowerPoint Slides. See below for access information.
