Overview

This comprehensive paperback book contains carefully chosen pieces that cover human behavior in organizations, from individual motivation to organizational processes. This anthology offers a broad mix of classic and recent articles; it covers emerging areas of interest such as business ethics and processes of creativity and change. This collection of readings is separated into four clearly defined dimensions: why and how we work; thinking and making decisions; interacting with others: social and group processes; and facing the future: creativity, innovation, and organizational leadership. An excellent resource for managers and other executives who need to know how to effectively lead their departments; this book provides the skills necessary for understanding the organization, and how power, influence, and interpersonal relations affect their businesses.

Read an Excerpt

Welcome to the fascinating world of organizational behavior. Here you will learn about the nature of people and how their behavior is influenced by others in organizations. You will study some basics of individual motivation, attitudes, and decision making, and see how these human tendencies can be forged into productive and ethical actions. You will read about how people are influenced by the politics and culture of an organization, and also how people may themselves shape the environment in which they work. Finally, you will study what it takes to be creative in an organizational setting, with tips about how to lead organizations in new and innovative directions.

This book is organized into four major dimensions. In each, one or more "foundation" readings are presented in which basic knowledge from the organizational sciences is reviewed. Then "applications" are presented from the literature of organizational behavior. The readings cover most of the major topics in the organizational behavior field and reflect the current state of our knowledge. Some chapters are research summaries; some are think pieces. All have been selected by the combined criteria of writing style and content. Thus, if a piece appears a bit dry, bear with it; it should contain enough content to be worth the effort. If a piece is especially interesting, enjoy the experience. When you finish this anthology, you should not only understand more about how people think and behave, but have some new ideas about how such behavior can be combined to build a productive and healthy organization.
