Organizational Behaviorplaces core concepts of human behavior and industrial psychology in a real-world context. Strong end-of-chapter exercises, activities, plus an optional case and exercise book make this flexible text suitable for students at the undergraduate level. Likewise, the authors' emphasis on the latest organizational behavior research continues to attract graduate students. An ongoing case featuring Enron encourages students to consider how all OB topics tie together and practice applying key concepts. Call-out quotes from managers appear at appropriate points throughout the text to highlight relevant, real-world examples. Building Managerial Skillsexercises require students to consider different workplace situations from a manager's standpoint and determine a suitable course of action for each scenario.
