The management of organizational behavior is a critically important source of competitive advantage in today’s organizations. Managers must be able to capitalize on employees’ individual differences as jobs are designed, teams are formed, work is structured, and change is facilitated. This textbook, now in its third edition, provides its readers with the knowledge required to succeed as managers under these circumstances.
In this book, John Wagner and John Hollenbeck make the key connection between theory and practice to help students excel as managers charged with the task of securing competitive advantage. They present students with a variety of helpful learning tools, including:
• Coverage of the full spectrum of organizational behavior topics
• Managerial models that are based in many instances on hundreds of research studies and decades of management practice – not the latest fad
• Completely new introductory mini-cases and updated examples throughout the text to help students contextualize organizational behavior theory and understand its application in today’s business world
This ideal book for upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate students of organizational behavior is written to motivate exceptional student performance and contribute to their lasting managerial success. Online resources, including PowerPoint slides and test banks, round out this essential resource for instructors and students of organizational behavior.
