From the Back Cover:

Organizational Behaviour is one of the most established and engaging books of its kind. The authors’ popular blend of critical thinking, social science underpinning and accessible style ensures that this book will enable you to view organizations and their actions in a new light. It will also challenge you to think critically about the theories presented, demonstrating the reality behind projected organizational images, and illustrating how theory is linked to practice. 

 

The ninth edition incorporates a number of innovative features that add further value to its comprehensive coverage of the field. 

 

Ø Includes recent research, theory and practice, illustrating relevant contemporary issues and practical examples. What is it like to work in a virtual team? Could your job be taken over by an intelligent machine? How will tattoos and body piercings affect your job prospects? Can you increase your confidence by ‘power priming’?

 

Ø Encourages you to compare organizational behaviour theories, using scenes from feature films that illustrate the issues in a memorable and engaging format.

 

Ø Offers critical incidents that put you in the position of a manager faced with a problem, giving you the chance to make and to justify your decisions in relation to real-world situations.

 

Ø Incorporates QR links to short Financial Times videos that explore current topics and problems based on the work of leading commentators and researchers.

 

Ø Includes innovative and increasingly relevant employability content that gives you the chance to assess and  develop the key skills that you will need after graduation.

 

Ø Incorporates illuminating examples from a range of organizations: BMW, Barclays Bank, Boeing, BP, the New York City Police Department, Google and Ikea, helping you to link theory to practice.

  

This book can be used by undergraduate, postgraduate and professional students, as it assumes no prior knowledge of social sciences in general, or of organizational behaviour in particular. It is the ideal introduction to organizational behaviour.
