Overview

The revitalized and new author team of Ivancevich, Konopaske and Matteson has listened and responded to reviewers', instructors', and students' suggestions on how to continue to make Organizational Behavior and Management, 7e a more user-friendly and application rich introductory OB textbook. To accomplish this, OBM 7e has achieved the difficult goal of balancing between preserving its key strengths (i.e., thorough, current, good mixture of research and practice, integrated text with relevant readings/cases/exercises) and revitalizing its content and internal appearance in several high-impact ways. "Preserving while revitalizing" captures the spirit of what I/K/M used as a guiding principle while writing OBM 7e.
