As the most critical yet accessible introduction to organizational behaviour and work this book will help you understand the complexities of organizational life and evaluate modern business practices.
Classic organizational behaviour topics such as team-working, motivation, and change are complemented by core critical approaches such as power and control, organizational misbehaviour, and health and well-being through a clear three-part structure. Students are encouraged to look beyond a descriptive approach and truly engage with the content. Examples and 'Stop and Think' boxes placed throughout chapters, as well as end-of-chapter case studies with accompanying questions, provide the
opportunity for this engagement and show how each chapter's theoretical coverage applies in real-life business situations. Suggestions of films and novels which relate to the chapter topic provide further opportunities to see organizational behaviour in context and demonstrate just how prevalent its
principles are in everyday life.
The accessible style assumes no prior knowledge on the part of the reader, and the full range of themes and topics explored provides a rich picture of the realities of organizational behaviour and work.
This book is accompanied by a selection of online resources, including:
Critical thinking exercises
Questions for research and discussion
