Organizational Behavior and Management introduces students to basic organizational behavior theories and concepts, provides valuable managerial insights, discusses best practices, and explores real-life organizational examples.

Over the course of the four sections of the book readers study management functions, individual processes in organizations, organizational processes and leadership, and how to understand and manage social processes and decision-making. Specific topics include team work, managing change and conflict, and understanding people's personalities and abilities and the way these impact the workplace.
Each chapter includes learning objectives, discussion questions, and assessment activities. Chapters also feature content boxes to highlight important information and colorful graphics that support and enhance the writing. Exam banks and PowerPoint slides are available to adopting professors. Organizational Behavior and Management is ideal for courses in the discipline, or any course that addresses managing people at work.
