Overview

This book offers a fresh and comprehensive approach to the essentials that constitute the discipline of organizational behaviour with a strong emphasis on the application of organizational behaviour and performance management in practice.

It concentrates on the development of effective patterns of behaviour, values and attitudes, and relates these issues to effective organization performance in times of organizational and environmental change and turbulence. The book is divided into four parts, providing a clear structure for the study of the subject:

  • Part One: The context of organizational behaviour
  • Part Two: The disciplines of organizational behaviour
  • Part Three: Organizational behaviour in practice
  • Part Four: Organizational behaviour – expertise and application

Organizational Behaviour is packed with references to current topics, practical examples and case studies from large corporations from around the world, including Ryanair, The Body Shop and RBS. This book covers examples of both good and bad practice, making it an interesting and unique introduction to the study of organizational behaviour.
