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 PEFORMANCE 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. To the student, performance is accelerated by providing a conversational writing style, making OB enjoyable to read, showing OB concepts as they are applied today, and including features that readily help students translate OB into the world around them. Connect then serves as the conduit to reinforce those concepts. All this ensures that your students achieve success in the classroom, readying them for today's real business world.
