9780070391666: Organizational Behaviour (McGraw-Hill series in management)

Featuring comprehensive coverage of the most important modern topics in organizational behaviour, this text for the junior, senior, or MBA-level OB course uses a conceptual framework to present research-based coverage of OB theories always followed by applications. Thoroughly revised, the sixth edition takes a totally up-to-date approach to the field. The book provides a strong conceptual framework for the study, understanding and application of OB and recognizes that we are now in a global economy and integrates an international perpsective throughout. Part III is now called "The heart of OB: Motivation, learning, and leadership". No other OB text has a theoretical chapter followed by an applied chapter on these three most important topics in the field. Over 30 new, cutting-edge topics such as self-efficacy, positive and negative affectivity, organizational commitment, self-managed teams, control theory, cognitive resource theory, learned helplessness, psychological hardiness, employee empowerment, telecommunication technology, divergent thinking, judgmental heuristics and biases, social decision schemes, status quo tendency, population ecology, and the learning organization. This edition includes new, highlighted "International Application Examples", along with some end-of-chapter cases, plus chapters 19 and 20 provide coverage of the international and cultural context of OB. It provides a more balanced treatment of the applications of OB theories on Leadership Applied (ch. 11) and significantly improves the attitude and behavioural decision-making chapters. In addition to new short discussion cases a new end of chapter "real Case", drawn from recent events, enhances relevance and applications. A new, longer, integrative real case also ends each major part.
