Introducing Organizational Behaviour and Management

Author: David Knights
Publisher: Cengage Learning EMEA
ISBN: 1844800350
Release Date: 2007-01
Genre: Business & Economics

This eagerly awaited introductory textbook provides a fresh approach to the study of Organizational Behaviour and management. Seeking to make the subject matter more relevant and accessible, it treats Organizational 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 organizations 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 Organizational 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 Organizational 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.

An Introduction to Organisational Behaviour for Managers and Engineers

ISBN: 9780750683340
Release Date: 2010
Genre: Business & Economics

If you understand organisations then you are more powerful, in that you are then able to further your own interests and/or those of the organisation. It then makes sense that all engineers as part of their undergraduate degrees, or their subsequent professional development, have to study organisational behaviour as part of their management training. This is a major requirement of Engineering Council UK (ECUK) for those wishing to become chartered engineers. This book aims to support courses that go towards meeting the ECUK requirements for management and business training, with coverage of team and group working, and further discussion of international cultural difference, which are major features of engineering degrees today. Chapters also cover key issues for maintaining a healthy working environment within an organisation, such as motivating employees, managing stress and dealing with organisational politics, as well as subjects to provide a greater understanding of company management including leadership and organizational structures. An Introduction to Organisational Behaviour for Managers and Engineers provides not only a practical introduction to OB for management students, but also a text that is specifically aimed at the needs of engineers and students of engineering. • Lecturer support material available including editable PowerPoint presentations and lecture notes allow lecturers to spend less time planning and more time teaching • Numerous real world case studies show how to apply the theory to real situations and related discussion questions help students to test their understanding and share ideas • Written by an experienced lecturer in the field to fit in with the organizational behaviour modules on both management and engineering modules, providing a succinct introduction to the topic without overwhelming the student.
