Organizational behaviour affects all of us, every single day. But do your students struggle to see the subject's relevance? Do they have difficulty going beyond its most commonplace theories? Do they wonder how it will help them in their future career? Then take a step into the lobby of Junction Hotel! We follow the experiences of its managers and employees as a new consortium tries to rebuild the success of a once-great establishment that has fallen on hard times. This fictional running case study helps students see how theory translates into practice in a familiar setting. For example, what kind of leadership styles do the new management team use? Are personality tests any use for hiring new staff for the gym? How do the staff on the receiving end of various management techniques feel and react? Follow the management dilemmas faced, and the techniques employed with varying rates of success, by a wide range of characters. The running case is interwoven throughout the book, encouraging students to make links between the different topic areas and gain a holistic view of organizational behaviour. The book covers all the core topics found on undergraduate modules, while also going a step further to consider alternative approaches and compare them with mainstream theories. Students are encouraged to develop a critical mindset and think about the context of the theories they come across and the values embedded within them. A wealth of real-life case studies, including those drawn from the public and not-for-profit sectors, bring the subject to life.Innovative on-page learning features link study and employability skills to the topics being discussed so students can apply theories from the book directly to their own lives and future careers. Interviews with students, employees and business leaders are included online, and show just how relevant organizational behaviour is to people's everyday lives. The real-life examples in the second edition have been augmented with new international and European examples in every chapter, and the book's Online Resource Centre now features seminar and group activities and a lecturer guide to help lecturers make full and effective use of the book and online material in their teaching. A unique, lively package makes this core reading for all business students taking an introductory module in organizational behaviour.

There is a large body of shared knowledge between the study of Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management but despite the crossover, they are often treated as very distinct disciplines. Written by a team of experts across both fields, Organizational Behaviour bridges the gap between OB and HRM, with an emphasis on inter-cultural and cross-cultural perspectives of organizational development, talent management, and leadership. Through a critical analysis of existing literature and case studies, the contributors cover topics such as corporate governance, ethical business practices, employee morale and motivation, performance management, corporate politics and conflict resolution, workplace diversity, creativity, and change management - all within the framework of current global employment standards and best practices.

In order to be effective, modern complex organizations require leadership at all levels which is capable of realising the creative potential of their people towards the attainment of common goals. Organizational Behaviour, a subject, based on scientific research and applied orientation, helps managers and members of organizations to understand, develop and utilize this tremendous human potential. It is now a widely accepted fact that mere possession of technical and administrative skills is not sufficient for leadership success. As such, the managers of the third millennium have started realising that emotions and attitudes of people are as important in determining the organizational success as their technical skills and knowledge. Thus, organizations have started selecting employees based on emotional quotient (EQ) and positive attitudes. The book provides an insight into the subject of organizational behaviour along with cases, interweaving them with relevant examples and real happenings. Divided into 15 sections, it covers all the major concepts and principles of management, organization theory and organizational behaviour, taking care of both the traditional and transitional viewpoints. It presents cases developed and collected from various sources and follows a student-friendly approach. Various concepts in the book have been explained in real Indian perspective to help readers get a practical understanding of the conceptual issues. The book is rich in diagrams, tables, and illustrations. The language and style have been kept simple to facilitate easy understanding by the readers. A variety of questions like descriptive, applied orientation and objective type, included in the book, is one of its distinctive features. This book fulfils the needs of students of MBA, MFC, M.Com, BBM, BBA, MHRM, Sociology and Management Studies.
