Introducing Organizational Behaviour And Management


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

This eagerly awaited introductory textbook provides a fresh approach to the study of Organizational Behaviour and management. Seeking to make the subject matter more relevant and accessible, it treats Organizational Behaviour as a field of activity that has many parallels with what is experienced in everyday life. Students will find it easier to learn about organizations by appreciating how work relations and management activities are not so distant from their own everyday lives.Uniquely, this book presents two distinct and highly contrasting perspectives on Organizational Behaviour. Key elements of what is conventionally studied in the field are introduced and treated as a foil for introducing a critical, less orthodox perspective.Written with the introductory Organizational Behaviour student in mind, this exciting new text has a four-colour design and uses classic pedagogical features such as case studies, think points, discussion questions, learning objectives and linked chapter summaries in order to engage students and provide a stimulating learning _ and teaching _ environment.

Organizational Behavior Solutions For Management


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In Organizational Behavior: Solutions for Management, Paul Sweeney and Dean McFarlin have identified 4 key management skills areas that act as building blocks for successful behavior in management. These skills are: self-insight/perceptual skills; ability to inspire/motivate/lead; ability to analyze situations; and personal flexibility/adaptability. The authors also feel strongly that successful management of organizational behavior rests on the problem-solving process; in fact, the 4 skills listed above enable managers to use this process to deal with the “people problems” they face more effectively. If nothing else, studying what organizational behavior has to offer as a field should help a person figure out his/her strengths and weaknesses.

Mike Matteson - published numerous research and theory-based articles on occupational stress, managing stress, preventive health, work-site health promotion, intervention programs, and research methods. He has consulted with and provided training programs for organizations in numerous industries. Reading this new edition of Organizational Behavior and Management, students become involved participants in learning about behavior and management within work settings. The 11th edition combines text, self-learning exercises, group participation exercises, and cases. These elements are directed at students interested in attempting to predict the behavior of people working in organizations. Organizational functioning is complex. No single model or theory of organizational behavior has emerged as the best or most practical. Managers must be able to probe and diagnose organizational situations when they attempt to understand, interpret, and predict behavior. This edition devotes considerable attention to encouraging the development of these probing and diagnostic skills. The first step in this development is for each reader to increase his or her own self-awareness. This first step is built into each chapter's content. Fundamental themes are woven throughout the book, including globalization, managing diversity and demographic changes, technological changes, total quality, and ethics and social responsibility. These themes are consistent with the recommendations for balanced subject matter coverage made by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business/International Association for Management Education. This internationally acclaimed accrediting body establishes the boundaries for appropriate topic coverage.

This book identifies and analyzes three distinct and interdependent perspectives on organizational behavior. Firstly, the book analyzes organizational behavior from the perspective of the individual actor, focusing on themes such as the differences in personality and their manifestations in the organization environment; attitudes, perceptions, and the evaluation of performance and problem solving, motivation to work, stress, emotions, and organizational well-being. Secondly, the authors focus on the relationships among actors. They analyze the conditions of effectiveness of workgroups, decisions, communications, and conflict, and conclude with themes tied to power and leadership. Lastly, the authors focus their attention on the wider organization and management structures, people, culture, and change. The book will be welcomed by instructors and students of organizational behavior around the world, as previous editions have been since the first edition appeared in 1977.
