Organizational Behavior: A Diagnostic Approach

 
9780132428279: Organizational Behavior: A Diagnostic Approach

The fifth edition integrates theory, research and applications. Each chapter is divided into two parts: text, where OB theories and research are presented, along with current examples from organizations around the world, and activities, including case exercises, self-assessment exercises, group activities, and ABC video exercises. The book retains its strong emphasis in diversity issues - multiculturalism, gender, and multinationalism. 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. This approach integrates diagnosis - describing, understanding, and explaining behaviour - and action - controlling, managing, or influencing behaviour - to bridge the gap between comprehension and understanding. New or expanded coverage includes learning organizations, impact of IT, re-engineering, horizontal, modular and virtual organizations, electronic media, global competitiveness and social cognition.

From the Back Cover:

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.

    Features:
  • New! 8 Comprehensive end-of-part cases.
  • New and expanded coverage of such topics as: competencies required by managers; organizations of the new millennium; electronic decision making; key forces that shape industry; virtual teams; multinational teams; and women, minorities, older, and physically-challenged workers.
  • New! Integrated coverage of e-business topics.
  • "A Manager's Preview" at the beginning of each chapter highlights key action areas and links to the "A Manager's Diagnostic Review" at the end of each chapter.
  • New! A custom PHLIP/CW Web site at www.prenhall.com/gordon. This is a content-rich, multidisciplinary business education Web site created by professors for professors and their students. PHILIP provides academic support for this text, including current events, an interactive study guide, Internet resources, and much more!
