If you are a new student in social science, looking for an engaging textbook in Organizational Behaviour that is not confined to traditional academic resources, then this is the right book for you.
Organizational Behaviour,10th edition by Buchanan and Huczynski, is one of the most established books in the field, ideal for undergraduate, postgraduate, and professional students who do not necessarily have a background in social science.
Well-known for its accessible, reader-friendly nature, this textbook challenges you to look beyond academic resources and explore the concept of organizations in society by drawing from your personal, everyday experiences.
Some of the issues explored include organizational environment analysis and people's behaviour, personality study and communication, the role of individuals in groups and the concept of teamworking.
The book employs a blend of social science underpinning assumptions, applies theory to practice, and uses movie clips examples as case studies to explore topical issues.
This edition also includes some new, exciting features, such as links to short podcasts and online videos, and summaries of recent key research findings, offering an in-depth analysis of the chapter themes. It also offers new, cutting-edge content on issues, such as the agile organization and women's personality traits in leadership, and a plethora of case studies on leading organizations.
The textbook aims to help you develop a critical understanding of the theories and principles regarding an organization's environment and culture, and explore its impact on people's personalities.
Combined with useful exercises and references for further support, this market-leading text will give you a comprehensive overview of the fundamental theories encompassing Organizational Behaviour and will encourage you to question your existing views on the topic, whether you are an undergraduate, postgraduate, or professional student.
