Organizational Psychology

Foundations and Applications

Robert Lawson and Zheng Shen

Organizational Psychology provides an overarching framework for studying, managing, and working in global organizations. The book develops and emphasizes a transcultural approach to the study of organizational psychology and promotes the understanding of a wide variety of people within different organizations by identifying both the common features and those which make groups and organizations unique. The book analyzes eight key organizational processes -- organizational culture; work force diversity; group dynamics; human and organizational motivation; leadership, power, and politics; decision making, conflict, and negotiation; individual development; and organizational development -- and discusses theory, empirical data, and applied strategies for each. Informative and engaging, this book is applicable to all real life organizational situations and problems.
