This is not a cut-and-dry approach to OB: Gordon's underlying viewpoint assumes that more than one perspective in OB can be right. She prepares students to analyze organizational situations in a variety of ways, rather than just one. To this end, she presents her acclaimed diagnostic approach, integrating diagnosis—describing, understanding and explaining behavior—and action—controlling, managing or influencing behavior—to bridge the gap between comprehension and understanding. The Sixth Edition also continues to integrate theory, research and applications, with numerous current real-world examples throughout.

In this new edition, Judith R. Gordon continues to show students how to use theory and research in organizational behavior to improve practice. By using a diagnostic approach, the text encourages students to describe situations completely, diagnose the organizational behavior found in a situation, prescribe the best practices or most appropriate behavior for a given organizational situation, and then act effectively in those situations.
With the most up-to-date examples and information, Organizational Behavior: A Diagnostic Approach 7/e offers students the skills to be more effective as both managers and employees.
