Building on the strengths of the four previous editions, Management and Organisational Behaviour, 5ed has been significantly updated, while retaining its distinctive managerial approach. The interactions among the structure and operations of organisations, the process of management and the behaviour of people at work are the main concerns of the book, while the need for organisational effectiveness and the importance of the role of management as an integrating activity are underlying themes throughout.
New to this edition are chapters on organisational learning and on technology. Throughout there is now greater emphasis on international issues, the impact of IT, ethics and social responsibility. Cases and examples have been selected from a variety of organisations - public, private, voluntary and international.
Subjects such as power and politics, innovation, learning organisations and empowerment have been given greater prominence.
All this is generously supported by short and long cases from the Financial Times and other sources,manager profiles, boxed exhibits and newspaper articles to provide a real-life context. Pedagogical features such as learning objectives, assignments, review and discussion questions enhance the learning
experience.

From the Back Cover:

The sixth edition of Europe's best selling Organisational Behaviour textbook builds on the strengths and reputation of previous editions. With its accessible writing style and comprehensive coverage and strong internal layout it has proven to be the text of choice for students of business and management. By presenting a managerial approach to organisational behaviour and demonstrating the application of behavioural science within the workplace the author emphasises the role of management as a core integrating activity. Management and Organisational Behaviour features annually in bestseller lists compiled in The Guardian, The Times, The Bookseller and Management Today.
A critical reflection feature within each chapter encourages the student to critically evaluate the key ideas and practices within management and organisational behaviour. It includes a 'debate' topic which offers a springboard for lively group and class discussion of important issues.
A page referenced glossary of key terms at the end of the book enables students to locate the information quickly.
New and updated articles from the Financial Times have been chosen to highlight the debate in the media and amongst practising managers concerning topical issues.
References to research and publications have been rigorously edited to ensure only the most relevant, important and up-to-date are included.
For students there is a first class Companion Website with multiple choice questions containing extensive feedback, annotated weblinks, suggested activities and further case studies to complement the text.
For the lecturer, an enhanced lecturer's guide with teaching notes and a range of additional case studies and seminar activities is available. PowerPoint slides, OHT masters and a bank of multiple choice questions and answers will also be available. Comments from the users of the fifth edition of Management and Organisational Behaviour- We needed a textbook written to fit into the European context and the European way of thinking. Mullins has provided us with that perfectly. The international dimension will help students in their future studies and beyond.
Jorgen Ljund, Linkoping University
The book is logically structured and clearly written, thus enabling easy access to the subject without compromising the academic integrity. The theories and concepts discussed in the text are clearly applied through interesting and relevant case studies. It is ideal for undergraduates, but I have also found it proves useful for overseas postgraduate students, for whom English is not their first language.'
Alf Crossman, Surrey European Management School, University of Surrey
'This text offers a balanced view of management theories with stimulating, but practical illustrations for a whole range of practitioners.'
Jeannie Frodsham, Lecturer in Management Studies, DMS Co-ordinator, Bury College
