Again real organizations such as Pret a Manger and Hewlett Packard, have been used to illustrate these issues.
- End of chapter `Self-test' and `Discussion' questions: These enable students to self-assess their progress and understanding of each chapter. The short self-test questions allow students to test their understanding of the main topics and issues discussed in the chapter, while the discussion questions encourage students to review and apply their OB knowledge, either through group discussion or individually.
