Organizational Behaviour

Daniel King and Scott Lawley

  • Brings the subject to life through the provision of a fully integrated fictional running case study, which engages students who have little or no experience of organizational behaviour, and clearly demonstrates its relevance in the everyday world.
  • The authors employ an engaging writing style which avoids the dry, overly theoretical approach of current books on the market.
  • Written from a critical perspective, the book shows the challenges and multiple perspectives inherent in organizational behaviour. Both managers' and employees' views are illustrated through the running case - with no 'quick fix' to the dilemmas faced - and competing theorists' models are discussed throughout. The problem-based, active-learning style encourages students to develop their own critical and analytical abilities.
  • Innovative features include tips on study and employability skills to help students become successful in their business degree and in their future careers.
  • More compact and more affordable than current textbooks on the market, though still covering all the core topics found on either one or two semester modules. Chapters are self-contained so lecturers can pick their own pathway through the subject.
  • A range of online resources to give students more insight into organizational behaviour and provide lecturers with ready-made lecture and seminar material.
