Excerpts

PREFACE This book is a primer on human behavior in organizations for students of management at three different levels--undergraduate, graduate, and executive education. Our goal in this volume is to prepare employees and managers to diagnose and understand organizational issues and be more effective. The reader includes writings by scholars and practitioners in the key areas of organizational behavior, which have been divided into four sections: "Understanding Yourself and Other People at Work," "Creating Effective Work Groups," "Leadership and Management," and "Managing Effective Organizations." This edition contains basic ideas and concepts, new research findings and practical applications, as well as emerging perspectives that suggest the future shape of the field. In contrast with previous editions, there is more emphasis on international topics, teams, commitment, creativity, diversity, e-commerce, and global business. Our aim was to compile an exciting collection of significant, theoretical, and practical work that is both reader-friendly and topical. We have read hundreds of articles to find "just the right ones," which can be classified in one or more of the following categories: Classic, ground-breaking articles that, while written years ago, still provide the definitive treatment of a subject and deserve to be read in the scholar's original words Lucid overviews of research findings and theories on a particular topic Descriptions of cutting-edge research Practical guides for managers based on research findings. For the first time, this edition contains brief chapter introductions to set the stage for readers and provide a glimpse of what they can expect. This book is designed to be used with the text/workbookOrganizational Behavior: An Experiential Approach to Organizational Behavior Seventh Edition,by the same authors. The articles contained herein form a complete package with the exercises and theory contained in the workbook, allowing the student to go through all the phases of the experiential learning process. Although designed as a companion volume, this collection of readings stands on its own and should be useful to teachers, managers, and consultants for the breadth of viewpoints and the wealth of data that it provides about the field of organizational behavior. When it comes to acknowledging contributions to this edition, our greatest debt of gratitude goes to Susan Mann, research assistant extraordinaire. Innumerable colleagues have suggested their favorite readings. In particular, we would like to thank Suzanne Adams, Bruce Drake, Howard Feldman, Tom Howe, Asbjorn Osland, Robert Peterson, and Susan Schor for their contributions and opinions. The reviewers of the previous edition were extremely helpful and thorough: John Dopp, Gene Hendrix, Avis Johnson, and Dennis O'Connor. The reference librarians at the University of Portland--Tony Greiner, Susan Hinken, Pam Horan, Torie Scott, Heidi Senior, as well as the director, Rich Hines--all went well above the call of duty in tracking down articles and citations. Carol Henson, Susan Mann, Jessica Osland and Debra Stephens deserve thiinks for their proof readings contributions. Ron Hill, dean at the University of Portland's business school, and the Robert B. Pamplin, Jr. Foundation have provided support for this project. Finally, we're very grateful to Melissa O'Neill, Gwynn Klobes, Michael Kuchler, and the student workers at the University of Portland business school who cheerfully lent a helping hand to this project. It was pleasure, as always, to work with the Prentice Hall crew: David Shafer, Jennifer Glennon, Michele Foresta, Judy Leale, Kim Marsden, and the unflappable Cindy Spreder. In addition to colleagues and publishing staff, an effort like this reader is also the culmination of numerous family sacrifices, favors, and opinions. W
