Summary

Fundamentals of Organizational Behavior provides a concise and timely presentation to the key concepts and theories of organizational behavior. The text addresses all the most important concerns for all levels of an organization: the individual, the group, and the organization as a whole. DuBrin goes beyond merely presenting theory--he shows learners its implications for today's organizations and managers through short vignettes and topical examples. Further, the text takes an application-oriented approach with activities and guidelines that will help learners to develop practical managerial skills to accompany their conceptual knowledge. Reviewers agree that this is a succinct and highly-practical choice for learning organizational behavior.
