Overview

The new edition of Organizational Behavior includes a rich array of exercises, cases, and applied materials such as the Kouzes and Posner Leadership Practices Inventory and Pfeiffer Annual Edition exercises available in the OB Skills Workbook. It also focuses more on the hot topic of ethics throughout the entire book to ensure it is contemporary and engaging. The text also introduces two brand new key features ‘Finding the Leader in You" and "Taking it Online". "Finding the Leader in You", discusses leading in the workplace in a personal and applied way. The goal is to make the material more relevant and applicable to today's readers. The "Taking it Online" feature will take the reader from the book to an online case, activity, self-assessment, or video clip of the leader they are reading about.

    Lots of information

    I have almost completed my OB course and this book was helpful in that it explained terminology, but I found many of the examples were outdated.

    Exceptional

    I am taking a course called Organizational Behavior - This text is outstanding - In plain English, it spells out practical strategy for succeeding in this changing business climate. Understanding the way the members of an organization work and build together puts my day to day management strategies into sharp perspective. This was extremely helpful and transformational. My whole idea of management has changed.

    WOW! Solid text worth having in library.

    Although it is difficult to keep up with the pace of change in the business world, this book seems to weather the storm well. There is TONS of practical information you can use each day. Very comprehensive overview - nicely written.

    Unfortunate book

    Unfortunately this is the textbook for my Org Behavior class. The book is a marketing vehicle for another magazine. The examples are vague and imprecise, and the treatment of many topics is cursory at best. The book is not written well and is poorly edited with many typos.
