The author team (Ivancevich/Konopaske/Matteson) has examined, listened, and responded to reviewers, instructors, and students suggestions on how to continue to make Organizational Behavior and Management, 9/e a more user-friendly and application rich introductory OB textbook.
To accomplish this, OBM 9/e achieves the difficult goal of preserving its key strengths (i.e., thorough, current, good balance of research and practice) while streamlining its content by removing over 100 pages of readings that are now available on the Web. This reduction in page length makes the book more affordable, teachable, and efficient for students.
The authorsí goal in writing Organizational Behavior and Management 9e is to improve studentsí ability to understand, interpret, and predict the behavior of people working in organizations. The book combines text, self-learning exercises, group participation exercises, and cases in an integrated way designed to enhance learning and retention of organizational behavior concepts and skills. A solid research base and an appendix on research techniques make this book suitable for a graduate studies course.
