Description

For one-semester, undergraduate and graduate level courses in Organizational Behavior. This text provides balanced coverage of key topics in Organizational Behavior including traditional as well as cutting-edge issues. At 300 pages, it's a viable alternative to the traditional 600-700 page core text. The absence of end-of-chapter pedagogy makes it flexible enough to combine with outside cases, readings, and experiential materials.show more
