"Industrial and Organizational Psychology, broaches manyof the issues discussed in the context of organisational crisis. Inthis case the overarching connection between the 13 articles is theapplication of organisational psychology to specific organisationalproblems. Motivations, stress, organisational justice, teameffectiveness, leadership, job satisfaction, goal setting andperformance are the main areas addressed, Although these arefamiliar themes, there is a concerted attempt by the authors tolink theory with practice - something my MBA students implore me todo..... The articles are of a good standard and the book shouldmake useful reading for anyone seeking to put some empirical andpractical flesh on the theoretical bones of organizationalpsychology."
