English | 2014 | 640 Pages | ISBN: 0077862562 | PDF | 59 MB
Now in its fourth edition, Colquitt-LePine-Wesson continues to offer a novel & innovative approach to teaching organisational behavior. The focus, tone, & organisation of the book shows students that: OB really matters - The book opens with two chapters barely covered in other texts: job performance & organisational commitment. Those topics are critical to managers & students alike, & represent two of the most critical outcomes in OB. Each successive chapter then links that chapters topic back to those outcomes, illustrating why OB matters in todays organisations. OB topics all fit together - The book is structured around an integrative model, shown on the back cover & spotlighted in the first chapter, that provides a roadmap for the course. The model illustrates how individual, team, leader, & organisational factors shape employee attitudes, & how those attitudes impact performance & commitment. In this way, the model reminds students where they are, where theyve been, & where theyre going. OB is all around them - The book includes innovative insert box features that students actually enjoy reading. OB on Screen uses scenes from popular films, such as Skyfall, Lincoln, 42, Moneyball, & Argo to demonstrate OB topics. OB at the Bookstore draws a bridge to popular business books, including Quiet, the Charisma Myth, Lean In, & the Happiness Project.
