This new edition builds on the strengths of the previous edition, and offers students a concise but broad coverage of the main theories informing organisational behaviour. The book moves from the individual to the organisational and the global context, and critically examines the three themes of change, communication and conflict in each. It promotes critical evaluation of theory and practice to enable students and managers to interpret and deal with organisational problems. This book is suitable for students requiring an introduction to organisational behaviour on business and management undergraduate degrees, post-experience and postgraduate courses, and professional courses. It is also designed as a focused and lively general reader on the subject.
