For undergraduate and graduate courses in Organizational Behavior.
About This Product Description Organizational Behaviour is the most student-engaging comprehensive book in the market. It makes OB relevant to students, no matter what their background, work experience or their career goals. Examples reflect the broad range of organizations in Canada: The text reminds both teacher and student alike that we must contend with a new paradigm of work that is more globally focused and competitive, relies more heavily on part-time and contract jobs, and places a higher premium on entrepreneurial skills, either within the traditional workplace structure, as an individual seeking out an alternative job, or as the creator of your own new business.
From its beginning, this text was the first to emphasize that OB is for everyone, from the bottom-rung employee to the CEO, as well as to anyone who has to interact with others to accomplish a task. We continue to emphasize this theme. We also include the feature OB in the Street, which further emphasizes how OB applies outside the workplace.
Clarity and readability are the hallmarks of this text. From our teaching experience, we know that students may not remember a concept, but they will remember an example. This text is packed full of recent real-world examples drawn from a variety of organizations: We also use examples taken from the world at large, to illustrate the broader applicability of OB material.
This text is regularly singled out for its comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of OB from both academic journals as well as business periodicals.
Exercises at the end of each chapter reinforce critical thinking, self-analysis, behavioural analysis, and team building. There are more relevant examples, updated theory coverage, and a continued emphasis on providing the latest research findings.
Based on reviews from numerous instructors and students across Canada, we have found that many potential users want chapters that have the right balance of theory, research, and application material, while being relevant to student learning. To accomplish this, we have: Learning Outcomes appear initially as an enumerated list on the chapter- opening page and then the numbered outcomes appear throughout the chapter again in the margins to direct readers to the section where the Learning Outcome is addressed.
Finally, the numbered outcomes are linked to review questions at the end of the chapter so that students can test whether they have achieved these outcomes.
Chapters now conclude with references to the cultural differences that exist within and between countries. Until recently, most OB research was conducted in Western countries. OB on the Edge, which is unique to the Canadian edition, provides an opportunity to explore challenging issues and encourages students to read more about these hot topics.
In this edition, we cover four topics in this innovative feature: MyManagementLab MyManagementLab is an online study tool for students and an online homework and assessment tool for faculty.
