Organizational Behavior


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Our goal with this 13th Edition is to keep this first mainline organizational behavior text uptodate with the latest and relevant theory building, basic and applied research, and the bestpractice applications. We give special recognition of this scientific foundation by our subtitle An EvidenceBased Approach. As emphasized in the introductory chapter, the time has come to help narrow the theory/research—effective application/practice gap. This has been the mission from the beginning of this text. As “hard evidence” for this theory/research based text, we can say unequivocally that no other organizational behavior text has close to the number of footnote references. For example, whereas a few texts may have up to 40 or even 50 references for a few chapters, all the chapters of this text average more than twice that amount. This edition continues the tradition by incorporating recent breakthrough research to provide and add to the evidence on the theories and techniques presented throughout. Two distinguishing features that no other organizational behavior textbook can claim are the following: 1) We are committed at this stage of development of the field of OB to a comprehensive theoretical framework to structure our text. Instead of the typical potpourri of chapters and topics, there is now the opportunity to have a sound conceptual framework to present our now credible (evidencebased) body of knowledge. We use the widely recognized, very comprehensive social cognitive theory to structure this text. We present the background and theory building of this framework in the introductory chapter and also provide a specific model (Figure 1.5) that fits in all 14 chapters. Importantly, the logic of this conceptual framework requires two chapters not found in other texts and the rearrangement and combination of several others. For example, in the opening organizational context part there is Chapter 4, “Reward Systems,” and in the cognitive processes second part, Chapter 7, “Positive Organizational Behavior and Psychological Capital,” that no other text contains. 2) The second unique feature reflects our continuing basic research program over the years. Chapter 7 contains our most recent work on what we have termed “Positive Organizational Behavior” and “Psychological Capital” (or PsyCap). [The three of us introduced the term “Psychological Capital” in our joint article in 2004]. To meet the inclusion criteria (positive; theory and research based; valid measurement; open to development; and manage for performance improvement), for the first time the topics of optimism, hope, happiness/subjective wellbeing, resiliency, emotional intelligence, selfefficacy, and our overall core construct of psychological capital have been given chapter status. Just as realworld management can no longer afford to evolve slowly, neither can the academic side of the field. With the uncertain, very turbulent environment most organizations face today, drastically new ideas, approaches, and techniques are needed both in the practice of management and in the way we study and apply the field of organizational behavior. This text mirrors these needed changes. Social Cognitive Conceptual Framework. The book contains 14 chapters in four major parts. Social cognitive theory explains organizational behavior in terms of both environmental, contextual events and internal cognitive factors, as well as the dynamics and outcomes of the organizational behavior itself. Thus, Part One provides the evidencebased and organizational context for the study and application of organizational behavior.

Organizational Behaviour


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Organizational behaviour affects all of us, every single day. But do your students struggle to see the subject's relevance? Do they have difficulty going beyond its most commonplace theories? Do they wonder how it will help them in their future career? Then take a step into the lobby of Junction Hotel! We follow the experiences of its managers and employees as a new consortium tries to rebuild the success of a once-great establishment that has fallen on hard times. This fictional running case study helps students see how theory translates into practice in a familiar setting. For example, what kind of leadership styles do the new management team use? Are personality tests any use for hiring new staff for the gym? How do the staff on the receiving end of various management techniques feel and react? Follow the management dilemmas faced, and the techniques employed with varying rates of success, by a wide range of characters. The running case is interwoven throughout the book, encouraging students to make links between the different topic areas and gain a holistic view of organizational behaviour. The book covers all the core topics found on undergraduate modules, while also going a step further to consider alternative approaches and compare them with mainstream theories. Students are encouraged to develop a critical mindset and think about the context of the theories they come across and the values embedded within them. A wealth of real-life case studies, including those drawn from the public and not-for-profit sectors, bring the subject to life.Innovative on-page learning features link study and employability skills to the topics being discussed so students can apply theories from the book directly to their own lives and future careers. Interviews with students, employees and business leaders are included online, and show just how relevant organizational behaviour is to people's everyday lives. The real-life examples in the second edition have been augmented with new international and European examples in every chapter, and the book's Online Resource Centre now features seminar and group activities and a lecturer guide to help lecturers make full and effective use of the book and online material in their teaching. A unique, lively package makes this core reading for all business students taking an introductory module in organizational behaviour.
