Organizational Behaviour: An Introductory Text 5th Edition
David Buchanan and Andrzej Huczynski, Financial Times Prentice Hall, 2004
The new edition of this successful text provides students and instructors with a definitive multidisciplinary approach to organizational behaviour. It provides concepts, theories, models and frameworks to help understand behaviour in organizations. Readers are encouraged to challenge current thinking critically in relation to their own ideas and experience, exploring alternative perspectives. Throughout, the text emphasizes how organizational behaviour ideas and methods apply in practice.
The widely-informed social science perspective and the clear, authoritative, and engaging writing style remain the same. Most of the pedagogical features of the fourth edition have been retained, including: learning outcomes and key concepts, stop exercises, recap and revision sections, cartoons and other illustrations, annotated springboards into further reading, an updated glossary and the unique Home viewing and OB in literature ideas.
New Invitation to see feature for this edition: an innovative journey into the domain of ‘visual literacy’, exploring how work and organizations are represented in photography and briefing students on how to ‘decode’ images from newspapers. Lecturers can readily introduce their own current images.New debates in this edition:
