This eagerly awaited introductory textbook provides a fresh approach to the study of Organisational Behaviour and management. Seeking to make the subject matter more relevant and accessible, it treats Organisational Behaviour as a field of activity that has many parallels with what is experienced in everyday life. Students will find it easier to learn about organisations by appreciating how work relations and management activities are not so distant from their own everyday lives. Uniquely, this book presents two distinct and highly contrasting perspectives on Organisational Behaviour. Key elements of what is conventionally studied in the field are introduced and treated as a foil for introducing a critical, less orthodox perspective. Written with the introductory Organisational Behaviour student in mind, this exciting new text has a four-colour design and uses classic pedagogical features such as case studies, think points, discussion questions, learning objectives and linked chapter summaries in order to engage students and provide a stimulating learning and teaching environment.
