Customer Reviews

Interesting book  April 27, 2011
by


Even if not required to read it, this textbook provides insight in an interesting way, and would be beneficial to managers who want to improve their workplace. This textbook takes a unique approach by highlighting the concepts of PEFORMANCE and COMMITMENT at the beginning of the book. After describing these topics in detail, every remaining chapter in the textbook concludes by linking that chapter's major topic to performance and commitment. I ordered this textbook from ecampus and I'm glad to receive it in time.






Organizational Behavior : Improving Performance and Commitment in the Workplace: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

The introductory section of Colquitt contains two chapters not found in the beginning of other books: Job Performance and Organizational Commitment. Why is this important? Being good at one's job and wanting to stay with one's employer are critical concerns for employees and managers alike.

This book takes a unique approach by highlighting the concepts of Performance and Commitment at the beginning of the book. After describing these topics in detail, every remaining chapter in the book concludes by linking that chapter's major topic to performance and commitment. Using this approach, students can better appreciate the practical relevance of organizational behavior concepts.

Organizational Behavior is noteworthy because the authors structured the chapters into an overarching model that is repeatedly reinforced, which helps prevent the chapters from feeling like a series of disjointed ideas, a common problem in OB courses.

Priced at $99 Net, professors will find that the student's actually buy the text, AND, because of the Colquitt team's lively, conversational writing style, students will read the assigned chapters as well.
