SYNOPSIS : Organisational Behaviour (OB) is the study and application of knowledge about how people, individuals, and groups act in organisations. It does this by taking a system approach. That is, it interprets people-organisation relationships in terms of the whole person, whole group, whole organisation, and whole social system. Its purpose is to build better relationships by achieving human objectives, organisational objectives, and social objectives. The organisation's base rests on management's philosophy, values, vision and goals. This in turn drives the organisational culture which is composed of the formal organisation, informal organisation, and the social environment. The culture determines the type of leadership, communication, and group dynamics within the organisation. The workers perceive this as the quality of work life which directs their degree of motivation. The final outcomes are performance, individual satisfaction, and personal growth and development. All these elements combine to build the model or framework that the organisation operates from. This book presents carefully selected current research on this subject.

SYNOPSIS : Organizational Behavior: Essential Tenets, is a well-organized introduction of the current field of organizational behavior with in-depth coverage of the most critical concepts. Its practical approach shows the power of organizational behavior theory for understanding one's behavior and the behavior of others in any organization. Although firmly grounded in behavioral science theory and research, the text is not a compendium of research findings. Champoux includes examples and builds frameworks that make the material clear and easy to understand. The concise format allows the text to be used as a primer or to be supplemented with additional cases, readings, or exercises.

SYNOPSIS : Develop effective management skills with up-to-date theory and research! An effective understanding of workplace behavior requires a solid grounding in both principles and practice. Organizational Behavior provides both. This comprehensive textbook uses realistic case examples, self-tests, and plentiful tables and figures to illustrate the principles of organizational behavior. Each chapter begins by posing a difficult work situation, which may be a conflict, a problem with motivation, or an issue of diversity. Then it goes on to discuss the principles and theories that apply to the case, returning to it at times to see how various strategies work. The start-of-chapter problems catch students’interest, and the clear explications of theory give them the concepts they need to come up with innovative solutions. The classic areas of ethics, problem employees, motivation, conflict, and organizational culture are amply covered, but Organizational Behavior also deals with areas too often neglected, including: the physical atmosphere of the workplace the effects of new technologies on workers the pitfalls and opportunities of globalization diversity and multiculturalism in the workplace both informal and formal organizational structure workplace gossip and the office grapevine Organizational Behavior integrates theory with practice so that students learn to apply concepts to real-world problems. This comprehensive textbook, the second edition of Human Behavior at Work, also features discussion questions, additional cases, self-tests, and useful tables and figures. A teacher's manual with lecture notes and a test bank is also available.

SYNOPSIS : The book begins with a treatment of the role of science and the nature of theory and research. A discussion of the early origins and history of organizational behavior follows. This is the most comprehensive coverage of how organizational behavior emerged and grew. It presents and evaluates the first generation theorists, whose work began during the first 20 years. The subject matter covered is motivation, leadership, and organizational decision making. The institutional culture of organizational behavior is discussed and a vision for the future of the field is stated. Here the early history and the evidence from the theories are brought together in an effort to assess the identity of organizational behavior and where it might be headed.

SYNOPSIS : Our goal with this 13th Edition is to keep this first mainline organizational behavior text uptodate with the latest and relevant theory building, basic and applied research, and the bestpractice applications. We give special recognition of this scientific foundation by our subtitle An EvidenceBased Approach. As emphasized in the introductory chapter, the time has come to help narrow the theory/researchβ€”effective application/practice gap. This has been the mission from the beginning of this text. As β€œhard evidence” for this theory/research based text, we can say unequivocally that no other organizational behavior text has close to the number of footnote references. For example, whereas a few texts may have up to 40 or even 50 references for a few chapters, all the chapters of this text average more than twice that amount. This edition continues the tradition by incorporating recent breakthrough research to provide and add to the evidence on the theories and techniques presented throughout. Two distinguishing features that no other organizational behavior textbook can claim are the following: 1) We are committed at this stage of development of the field of OB to a comprehensive theoretical framework to structure our text. Instead of the typical potpourri of chapters and topics, there is now the opportunity to have a sound conceptual framework to present our now credible (evidencebased) body of knowledge. We use the widely recognized, very comprehensive social cognitive theory to structure this text. We present the background and theory building of this framework in the introductory chapter and also provide a specific model (Figure 1.5) that fits in all 14 chapters. Importantly, the logic of this conceptual framework requires two chapters not found in other texts and the rearrangement and combination of several others. For example, in the opening organizational context part there is Chapter 4, β€œReward Systems,” and in the cognitive processes second part, Chapter 7, β€œPositive Organizational Behavior and Psychological Capital,” that no other text contains. 2) The second unique feature reflects our continuing basic research program over the years. Chapter 7 contains our most recent work on what we have termed β€œPositive Organizational Behavior” and β€œPsychological Capital” (or PsyCap). [The three of us introduced the term β€œPsychological Capital” in our joint article in 2004]. To meet the inclusion criteria (positive; theory and research based; valid measurement; open to development; and manage for performance improvement), for the first time the topics of optimism, hope, happiness/subjective wellbeing, resiliency, emotional intelligence, selfefficacy, and our overall core construct of psychological capital have been given chapter status. Just as realworld management can no longer afford to evolve slowly, neither can the academic side of the field. With the uncertain, very turbulent environment most organizations face today, drastically new ideas, approaches, and techniques are needed both in the practice of management and in the way we study and apply the field of organizational behavior. This text mirrors these needed changes. Social Cognitive Conceptual Framework. The book contains 14 chapters in four major parts. Social cognitive theory explains organizational behavior in terms of both environmental, contextual events and internal cognitive factors, as well as the dynamics and outcomes of the organizational behavior itself. Thus, Part One provides the evidencebased and organizational context for the study and application of organizational behavior.
