The result is a challenging, yet accessible, analysis of contemporary work with the aim of improving management practice at its core. The new and second edition of this highly regarded textbook has been revised and updated throughout. Written by a highly experienced team of expert, this textbook is an essential resource for advanced undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA students of management and organizational behaviour.
