BOOK EXCERPT:

Develop effective management skills with up-to-date theory and research! An effective understanding of workplace behavior requires a solid grounding in both principles and practice. Organizational Behavior provides both. This comprehensive textbook uses realistic case examples, self-tests, and plentiful tables and figures to illustrate the principles of organizational behavior. Each chapter begins by posing a difficult work situation, which may be a conflict, a problem with motivation, or an issue of diversity. Then it goes on to discuss the principles and theories that apply to the case, returning to it at times to see how various strategies work. The start-of-chapter problems catch students'interest, and the clear explications of theory give them the concepts they need to come up with innovative solutions. The classic areas of ethics, problem employees, motivation, conflict, and organizational culture are amply covered, but Organizational Behavior also deals with areas too often neglected, including: the physical atmosphere of the workplace the effects of new technologies on workers the pitfalls and opportunities of globalization diversity and multiculturalism in the workplace both informal and formal organizational structure workplace gossip and the office grapevine Organizational Behavior integrates theory with practice so that students learn to apply concepts to real-world problems. This comprehensive textbook, the second edition of Human Behavior at Work, also features discussion questions, additional cases, self-tests, and useful tables and figures. A teacher's manual with lecture notes and a test bank is also available.

BOOK EXCERPT:

As scientists toil in the fields of their disciplines, they rarely enjoy opportunities to step back from their work and evaluate where their efforts have taken them. Assessing a field's scientific progress, however, is critical if it is to have any hope of making meaningful advances. The time has come for a systematic self-examination of the state of the field of organizational behavior. Where has it been? Where is it now? And where is it going? The present book poses these questions to raise the self-consciousness of organizational scholars, causing them to question the field's values and its worth as a scientific and practical endeavor. Such a critical self-assessment of the state of organizational behavior is absolutely essential if the field is to prosper and make meaningful advances to behavioral science and to the welfare of individuals and society. This volume is a collection of essays by the field's most highly regarded scholars--experts who have contributed widely to the field, and who were invited to share their thoughts about its past, present, and future. By presenting their ideas about the state of organizational behavior, the discipline as a whole is invited to engage in critical self-reflection. No other book serves this function.

The book begins with a treatment of the role of science and the nature of theory and research. A discussion of the early origins and history of organizational behavior follows. This is the most comprehensive coverage of how organizational behavior emerged and grew. It presents and evaluates the first generation theorists, whose work began during the first 20 years. The subject matter covered is motivation, leadership, and organizational decision making. The institutional culture of organizational behavior is discussed and a vision for the future of the field is stated. Here the early history and the evidence from the theories are brought together in an effort to assess the identity of organizational behavior and where it might be headed.
