Overview: Managing people and their behavior in organizations is one of the most challenging tasks anyone could face. Gibson’s Organizations: Behavior, Structure, Processes, Thirteenth Edition, presents theories, research results, and applications that focus on managing organizational behavior in small, large, and global organizations. It is organized and presented in a sequence based on behavior, structure, and processes. Each part is presented as a self-contained unit and can therefore be presented in whatever sequence instructors prefer. Organizations is easily adaptable to individual preferences. This edition emphasizes that the most successful managers in the global economy will be those who can anticipate, adapt, and manage change.

New opening vignettes frame each chapter using real world situations, events, facts or problems. These are circumstances that managers of behavior, structure and processes face every day giving students a sense of relevancy.
Because feedback received indicates work stress is a major individual factor in organizational behavior, a new chapter (7) has been added to the 11th Edition. The material is thoroughly researched and up-to-date, a hallmark of all chapters in Organizations.
Because students respond to real world examples that support academic/research findings, increased real-world situations and examples are used to illustrate how the theory and research lessons can be applied in work settings.
'Take it to the Net' exercises require students to perform a specific assignment on the Internet. Each assignment is associated with a theory, research finding, application, or topic in the particular chapter and assists students in their comprehension.
Close-Up boxes, which number two per chapter, are a favorite of students and teachers. They show actual applications of the concepts and theories presented in the chapter. Whenever appropriate, these boxes are used to reflect the important issues of ethics, diversity, and international organizational behavior.
The clear, understandable writing style makes complex research easy for students to understand and comprehend.
A significant amount of new and current material on information technology, e-commerce, diversity, ethics, global management, organizational culture, teams, team building and total quality management has been added to keep up with the rapidly changing environment.
