Since the introduction of organisational behaviour as a discipline, there has
been an enormous shift in working patterns and conditions. The organisational
world in which conventional OB was established - high employment, first world
economic domination - is very different to contemporary organisational settings
characterised by recession, globalisation and a different moral climate. What
is offered here is an interpretation of OB that reflects contemporary conditions
and contemporary social thinking.
The aim is to situate OB within the theoretical developments of recent times,
the sources of which, like semiotics or poststructuralism, often lie outside
the traditional informing disciplines of OB. Starting with the most basic concepts,
but developing toward higher level concepts, the implications for thinking
about organisational behaviour are all the time drawn out in clear and accessible
language. The text is therefore ideal for those taking an advanced course in
OB, whether at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
