Overview

In watching NBC's "The Office," one can reflect on the common office-place interplay and recall their own, similar situations in their own work environments. How many times has a worker "goofed off" when the boss is out of the office, or played a potentially damaging "prank" on a co-worker? Herein lies the inspiration for this book. "The Office: An American Workplace" (as the pilot episode was originally titled) is a humorous and sometimes entirely too accurate portrayal of the American Workplace, and therein an ideal demonstration of many topics that are taught in today's business schools. Most obviously, topics of Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management are demonstrated, but the list does not end there. The pedagogical use of "The Office" is not limited to the examples in this text but only by one's imagination. This book sets out to inform OB/HR instructors about the entertaining and informative use of "The Office" for use in their classroom.
