The introductory section of Colquitt contains two chapters not found in the beginning of other books: Job Performance and Organizational Commitment.
Why is this important? Being good at one’s job and wanting to stay with one’s employer are critical concerns for employees and managers alike. This book takes a unique approach by highlighting the concepts of PEFORMANCE and COMMITMENT at the beginning of the book.
After describing these topics in detail, every remaining chapter in the book concludes by linking that chapter’s major topic to performance and commitment. Using this approach, students can better appreciate the practical relevance of organizational behavior concepts. Priced at $99 Net, professors will find that the student’s actually buy the text, AND, because of the Colquitt team’s lively, conversational writing style, students will read the assigned chapters as well.
